4 Ways a Robot or Drone 3D Printer Will Change Architecture

No other production process brings massive amounts of material to one place, constructs one item, and then hauls away the garbage. The inefficiencies are monumental. Modular construction has promised a great deal of potential to reduce waste. But what if one answer is to do more intricate construction on-site, not less? The technologies combined for a robot or drone 3D printer may quickly become the peanut butter and jelly of 21st-century fabrication technology. Earlier this summer MX3D made headlines for incredible plans to 3D print a pedestrian bridge with multi-axis robots. 1. MUPPette. MUPPette’s early success led its designers to question just how viable its fabrication method is. “3D printing right now is just extrusion,” Tran says. 2. NASA happens to agree. Comuntaller. SoDo MakerSpace - Seattle - Organisme communautaire. Reshape. Geographies of innovation. In recent years, Barcelona has focused on research and innovation as pillars of urban economic development.

The study 'Geographies of innovation' aims to assess the urban conditions for a suitable implementation of innovative initiatives. Beyond their individual success, the impact of research and innovation facilities is evaluated on an urban scale. Torno Co. Lab / Rama Estudio.

Two weekends ago, I attended EdCamp NYC at The School at Columbia, an independent school on Manhattan's Upper West Side.

Creating Makerspaces in Schools

One of the things I love about attending edcamps is that the day is always unpredictable because you don't know what will be discussed or who will be leading conversations until that morning. What ensued was an inspiring day focused on tinkering, exploration and innovation. Simakerspace workshops. Choose one or all three of these intro to digital technology demo workshops!

Is it a Hackerspace, Makerspace, TechShop, or FabLab? The past decade has seen the sudden, dramatic appearance of community spaces offering public, shared access to high-end manufacturing equipment.

Is it a Hackerspace, Makerspace, TechShop, or FabLab?

These spaces are interchangeably referred to as hackerspaces, makerspaces, TechShops, and FabLabs. This can lead the intended audience to become incredibly confused as to why there might be so many names for a single concept. I’d like to take some time to untangle the mess, explain the concepts behind each title, and talk about why I now make significant distinctions between all of these types of spaces. Let’s start with the hardest to untangle – what’s the difference between a Hackerspace and a Makerspace? Hackerspaces I’ll start by saying that there are many people “in the know” who don’t make any distinctions between the term ‘hackerspace’ and ‘makerspace’.

MADE Makerspace Barcelona. Stgo Maker Space. Somos un espacio donde convergen la imaginación, invención y creatividad.

Stgo Maker Space

Promovemos, articulamos y desarrollamos instancias colaborativas de experimentación, aprendizaje y trabajo; puntos de encuentro e intercambio donde comunidades, de nuevos y experimentados makers-creadores, trabajan en diversos proyectos que combinan arte, artesanía, ingeniería, tecnología, reutilización creativa, performance, música y ciencia utilizando nuevas tecnologías y herramientas tradicionales. Somos parte de un nuevo paradigma definido por el movimiento Maker, el Opensource y el “hazlo tu mismo” (DIY).

Nuestra visión y misión tiene que ver con que queremos crear espacios dsonde la gente pueda descubrir y hacer lo que lo haga feliz. Queremos comunidades más felices y conectadas.
