Research Facilities

29. November 2010

 

 
 
 

The following facilities developed out of the current scientific research activities in the individual departments with their respective concentrations:

 
 
 

Special research resources

 
 

Given the declared aim of research-driven teaching, a specialised rapid prototyping machine is being developed to facilitate and accelerate the development of conceptual models and form-finding studies. Interested students are invited to participate in this project.

Project
 

The department of History of Architecture and Building Archaeology has scanners based on a variety of technologies that allow even highly complex 3D geometries to be completely and precisely digitised. Laser scanners with a range of up to 800m (Riegle Z420i) are available for recording and digitally processing physical structures of building architecture, urban planning, and landscape architecture. Even surface textures and archaeological details can be scanned and rendered. The range of research services offered by the department include equipment lending, as well as contract work that requires extended processing and transformation of 3D data into spatial models and architectural drawings, with special consideration of the research needs of architects and archaeologists. For more information, see http://baugeschichte.tuwien.ac.at

 
 
 

The laboratory for reverse engineering offers a range of technological possibilities for digitising three-dimensional objects, includung a small 5-axial coordinate measuring arm and a low­-cost laser scanner developed from the DAVID project. A state-of-the-art measuring arm system with laser scanner will soon be installed. Acquisition funding for a suitable system is currently being sought in connection with an innovative project cooperation between the Institute of Photogrammetry & Remote Sensing and the Department of History of Architecture and Building Archaeology.

 
 
 

Beyond simple CNC and laser mills, research and teaching in the field of computer-aided manufacturing is supported by a high-precision, industrial-grade Kuka robot (KR 60 HA). The robot with 7 controllable axes and variable cutting tool sets is used primarily for the milling of larger and more complex free-form models and prototypes. Current research activities aim at controlling the robot with a CO2 laser to enable chipless milling of curved surfaces.
