Theory becomes practice

In ProtoLab you can get advice and guidance in relation to mechanical and technical parts for your project work.

Come by when the sign outside the lab is on with the blue light, or send an e-mail.

It is also possible to get materials for your project


We work in SolidWorks and SolidCAM.

  • Tasks for Laser Cutting:
    • Drawings must be made in SolidWorks as a .part file or as a .dxf file
  • Tasks for Milling in the CNC Processing Center:
    • Drawings must be made in SolidWorks as a .part file

In addition, tasks are performed on manual machine.

Before you ask

Consider the following:

  • Can I make the parts in KaSelvLab myself?

  • Search the internet for ideas / inspiration.

  • Which components should I use?

  • What type of motor do I need?

  • What kind of materials are required?

  • Make a drawing in SolidWorks.
