An idea or a thought can be difficult to describe to others – “A picture is worth a thousand words” is an old adage, in its own right. However, a physical object says even more – “An object is worth a thousand pictures” and this is where the MAD Studio comes into the frame!
MAD, which means Machine – Art – Design, is NetPort.Karlshamn´s version of the time tested concept called FAB LAB (Fabrication Lab). The MAD Studio is equipped with advanced computer controlled machinery for 3D scanning, 3D printing and machining with cutting tools (routing). In short, it is a fabrication lab, specialized in 3D graphics.
The MAD Studio is a unique meeting place for curiosity, creativity and technology. It connects the digital world with the physical and here you can transform your ideas into physical objects that you can feel, touch and view from all angles. Sculptures and other art objects, architectural or ship models, prototypes for machine parts are just a few of the thousands of examples in using the MAD Studio equipment; the list does not stop! Surely if you have an idea that we didn’t think of, you are welcome to introduce it to the MAD Studio staff.
