Fab lab

Fab lab
A fab lab (fabrication laboratory) is a small-scale workshop offering (personal) digital fabrication.[1][2] A fab lab is generally equipped with an array of flexible computer controlled tools that cover several different length scales and various materials, with the aim to make "almost anything".[3] This includes technology-enabled products generally perceived as limited to mass production. While fab labs have yet to compete with mass production and its associated economies of scale in fabricating widely distributed products, they have already shown the potential to empower individuals to create smart devices for themselves. These devices can be tailored to local or personal needs in ways that are not practical or economical using mass production. History[edit] Popular equipment and projects[edit] Flexible manufacturing equipment within a fab lab can include: FabFi[edit] List of labs[edit] MIT maintains a listing of all official Fab Labs, worldwide.

Printed circuit board milling Milled Printed Circuit Board Printed circuit board milling (also: isolation milling) is the process of removing areas of copper from a sheet of printed circuit board material to recreate the pads, signal traces and structures according to patterns from a digital circuit board plan known as a layout file. Similar to the more common and well known chemical PCB etch process, the PCB milling process is subtractive: material is removed to create the electrical isolation and ground planes required. Advantages[edit] PCB milling has advantages for both prototyping and also for some specialist PCB designs. Prototyping can provide a fast-turnaround board production process without the need for wet processing. Some PCBs, requiring extensive drilling or profiling of the board outline are particularly suitable for production by milling. In mass production, milling is unlikely to replace etching although the use of CNC is already standard practice for drilling the boards. Hardware[edit] Tooling[edit]

FabLab South Africa Innovation ouverte Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Elle peut concerner tous les domaines de la recherche. Dans sa matérialisation économique, elle se traduit souvent par des plates-formes et outils d'échanges de type Give and Get (donner/recevoir) ou des plates-formes mutualisées d'innovation. Dans certains cas, par exemple pour les prix (allant jusqu'à 1 million de US dollars) délivrés par une entreprise qui joue le rôle d'intermédiaire en innovation ouverte comme InnoCentive, il s'agit d'inviter les « esprits créatifs » à trouver les meilleurs chances de résoudre le mieux possible, et le plus vite possible les problèmes les plus graves que l'humanité doit affronter[1] (problèmes de biodiversité, pollution, climat, santé environnementale, alimentation, développement, éducation). Dans ce cas, en échange des bourses scientifiques qui sont offertes aux chercheurs retenus, il leur est demandé de publier leurs résultats sous une licence perpétuelle, libre, gratuite[2],[3].

Open design RepRap general-purpose 3D printer that not only could be used to make structures and functional components for open-design projects but is an open-source project itself. Uzebox is an open-design video game console.[1] Zoybar open source guitar kit With 3-D printed body[4] Open design is the development of physical products, machines and systems through use of publicly shared design information. Open design involves the making of both free and open-source software (FOSS) as well as open-source hardware. History[edit] Sources of the open-design movement[edit] Sharing of manufacturing information can be traced back to the 18th and 19th century.[6][7] Aggressive patenting put an end to that period of extensive knowledge sharing.[8] More recently, principles of open design have been related to the free software and open source movements.[9] In 1997 Eric S. The idea of open design was taken up, either simultaneously or subsequently, by several other groups and individuals.

The range stretches from simple sequences in small machines to complex factory wide or even global processes. The star in this niche is a system called While the name may not be familiar to most people, the system has proved itself in the Swedish steel manufacturing business for more than two decades. It is actively developed and maintained and has a very interesting and active forum. Arduino is a project aiming for easy prototyping of smaller electronic systems.

RepRap Project RepRap version 1.0 (Darwin) RepRap version 2.0 (Mendel) First part ever made by a Reprap to make a Reprap, fabricated by the Zaphod prototype, by Vik Olliver (2006/09/13) The RepRap project is a British initiative to develop a 3D printer that can print most of its own components.[1] RepRap (short for replicating rapid prototyper) uses an additive manufacturing technique called Fused filament fabrication (FFF) to lay down material in layers; a plastic filament or metal wire is unwound from a coil and supplies material to produce a part. The project calls it Fused Filament Fabrication (FFF) to avoid trademark issues around the "fused deposition modeling" term. As an open design, all of the designs produced by the project are released under a free software license, the GNU General Public License.[2] History[edit] All of the plastic parts for the machine on the right were produced by the machine on the left.
