How might we restore vibrancy in cities and regions facing economic decline? - Concepting - Fablab where designer, engineer and Entrepreneur gatherconcept 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
BCN FAB LAB www.fablabbcn.org BCN FAB LAB is a production, investigation and education centre, that uses digital last generation machines destined to the creation of prototypes and scale models for architecture, construction, industrial design and any activity that needs the connection from a computer to a machine to manipulate materials according to digital instructions. These technologies also allow to introduce in the material production, parametric design and manufacture of different elements without added cost, hence impelling personal manufacture.
A Fablab (short for: fabrication laboratory) is a fully equiped fabrication workshop that gives everyone, from small children to entrepreneurs and businesses, the capability to turn their ideas and concepts into reality. The aim is to make almost anything! Fablab is an international community that wants to share knowledge. Fablabs worldwide have the same equipment and capabilities. The labs also share digital designs and fabricated solutions forming a network of intellectual property for ideas exchange.
