Sandbox - open laboratory

Date of publication: 4.10.2023

The Faculty of Mechanical Engineering has a laboratory, the Sandbox, which is open only to first and second year students of the University of Ljubljana. The Sandbox is an open laboratory - this means that we share a common space, excellent equipment, knowledge sharing and engineering creativity.

During the week, the Sandbox hosts ๐—ฏ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐˜‡๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฎ๐—ฐฬŒ๐—ป๐—ฒ ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ฎ๐—ธ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ฐฬŒ๐—ป๐—ฒ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐—ฑ๐—ถ๐˜€๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ป๐—ฒ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ป๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฒ, which are run by our members.

In the past academic year, projects such as: a high-speed 3D printer, a belt sander, a Toastomat, a multi-purpose multi-axis manipulator and SpaceDent - dentistry in space, among others, were carried out.

If you are interested in creative engineering pursuits, you can join us at the meeting, every ๐—ฐฬŒ๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ฟ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ธ ๐—ผ๐—ฏ ๐Ÿญ๐Ÿฐ:๐Ÿฌ๐Ÿฌ in the Sandbox. You can register for workshops here.
