Events, news related with Colaborativa or some of the projects we participate in.

At the end of May we took part in the sixth edition of 3Dcamp hosted by the University of Limerick and organized by Gabriela Avram, James Corbett & Vicky Lee.

Crypto currencies, digital fabrication, 3D printing & free culture were some of the themes presented. The day started with Conor MacCormack from MCor technologies who gave a fantastic overview of their paper-baser full color 3Dprinting technology.

In our talk we described the experience of building our own fabrication lab at the School Of Architecture following three main principles: making them as affordable as possible, using Open Source projects for all our machines and trying to use self-replicable designs so students could fabricate their own machines with the fablab ones. After the talk, we did a visit to our facilities with some friends from TOG in Dublin, 091labs in Galway and Milklabs in Limerick.

Finally, we would like to thank Gabriela, James, Vicky & the rest of the organization for such interesting day. Looking forward to next year 3DCamp!
