3D Competence Center // 3D-Kompetenzzentrum Niederrhein


Our lab has been running Germany's first Fab Lab since 2009. In 2015, we acquired 1M€ of funding from the EU and the state of NRW through their Regio.NRW initiative for a three-year research agenda into future user interfaces for personal design and personal fabrication. Our work is part of the 3D Competence Center, a collaboration headed by the University of Applied Sciences Rhein-Waal, and with the University of Applied Sciences Ruhr-West, to form a digital fabrication competence center. We also offer the Fab Academy curriculum in collaboration with MIT professor Neil Gershenfeld at each of our three locations.



Within the 3DCC project, we are working on several topics:
  • Touch-enabled textile surfaces: software and hardware tools to enable fashion designers to create interactive textiles more easily, by Nur Al-huda Hamdan
