LifeCycleReport. The Tinkering Studio. Fashion Digital Studio. Liverpool Life Sciences UTC Innovation Labs: Towards a Life Sciences Fab Lab at the UTC. The Fab Foundation, formed in the USA, early in 2009 aims to promote the growth of an international network of labs to educate, innovate and invent, using technology and digital fabrication thereby allowing anyone to make (almost) anything. The overarching aim being to improve lives and livelihoods around the world indirectly. At the Life Sciences UTC in Liverpool, we have embraced this concept through the integration of 3D printing and Molecular Life Science Research into our Innovation Lab programme. You will have seen in earlier Blog posts describing the ways in which students at Y12 are developing equipment to drive our experimental programmes, we are now aiming to adopt the Fab-Lab approach as a major component of our Y13 project programme.

(Each project will be described in details in a subsequent post, but here are a few tasters in advance). The value of mass spectrometry in Molecular Biology research in the post-genomic era cannot be over-stated. Fab Lab Liverpool. Welcome | FabLabs. About Fab Lab London | Fab Lab London. Fab Lab London is the City of London’s first purpose built digital fabrication and rapid prototyping workspace. We live at 1 Frederick’s Place in the City with our founding partners Bathtub2Boardroom and the RSA Great Recovery initiative.

We’re a 4000 sq.ft. creative space that provides open and membership based access to digital fabrication tools, education workshops, making events and a vibrant community. We help individuals and companies learn about the application of digital technologies, rapid hardware prototyping, 3D printing and sustainable design practices. We have a range of fabrication tools including laser cutters, 3D printers, milling machines, sewing machines, 3D scanners, traditional hand tools (saws, drills, hammers, chisels etc) and CNC machines.

Fab Lab London could not have been possible without the support of our partners. The Fab Lab can offer “This space has opportunities for biotech, for hacking, for anything really … It’s only limited by imagination.” Collab.

View this page in: Ashton Community Trust. FabLab has an exciting new website with loads of information about what we do and how to get involved! Visit www.fablabni.com The Ashton Community Trust is delighted to announce that is has Northern Ireland's first operational Fab Lab. A Fab Lab (Digital Fabrication Laboratory) is halfway between a laboratory and a workshop it's a place where you can make (almost) anything, where both small children and inventors can turn an idea into reality. Fab Lab came into life as a project from the prestigious Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and the staff from the institute, including Prof Neil Gershenfeld have been integral in establishing the lab.

Inside is state of the art computer controlled machinery that includes a 3D printer, a laser cutter, CNC router, full electronics station and a large scale vinyl cutter. We can make products out of wood, acrylic, composite moulds, silicon, cardboard, sheet aluminium, plastics, copper foil and vinyl. Www.fablabni.com Patrick O'Hare FabLab Belfast. How might we restore vibrancy in cities and regions facing economic decline? - Concepting - Fablab where designer, engineer and Entrepreneur gather. Idea Empower local industries with local/remote designers, engineers and entrepreneurs at the fabrication workshop. Heavy industry such as car, electricals etc were only for big companies.

But now, digital fabrication has become more reasonable and easy to access and a customized product for only a few people can be fabricated rather than mass production approach with reasonable cost. Fablab is a set of machining tools and digital fabrication machines such as 3D printers, shopbot, lasorcuter etc. and anyone from local community can have access to them for any purpose as long as the design is open to public. Fablab can work as a training centers which educate prospective young local designers and engineers.a R&D center for big companies which can prototype products. an entrepreneurship center where empowers designer, engineer and entrepreneur collaboratea hub of global Fablab network, which enables local commuity to work with other fablab all over the world. 1. find the place. 2.
