This years new students got a steep introduction to model building by the whole raplab-team. It started with an introduction lecture (45') about the art of model building and and various small topics that one should consider during the process (craftsmanship, measuring, scaling, history etc.) and ended with a comprehensive two hour hands on course in the wood workshop where every student got the opportunity to build his own wooden caliper.
In addition to the introduction every student got the book: basics modellbau, from alexander schilling a dust mask, ear and eye protection for free.
