Case Study: South Shields

Local resident Kevin Flett, a retired designer, has used the FabLab to bring his CGI designs of South Shields in the 1960’s to life with the help of our cutting edge technology.

Kevin first visited FabLab on the opening day of The Word in October 2016 and now visits the facility regularly using both the 3D printer and laser cutting machines to create scale models of his designs.

I use old photographs of the town and then recreate them using CGI techniques and now, thanks to FabLab, I’m able to take these to the next level and bring them to life with full, 3D models.

FabLab is essential to me. It really is a very valuable resource which has made it possible for me to bring my designs to life. It’s a fantastic service and I’d urge anyone and everyone to try it for themselves to see just how great it is!
