Since the beginning of Faberin, we have thought it appropriate to highlight the importance of the Fablab, i.e. the digital manufacturing workshop for personal use. This space is reserved for the production of physical objects on a personal or local scale and groups together machines that operate controlled by computers.
The main functionality of the Fablab lies in its strong link with society, something that positions it above industry.

Main characteristics of a Fablab

Fab Labs is a global network of local labs that encourage creativity by providing individuals with digital manufacturing tools.

Anyone can use the Fablab to make almost anything, so its access is totally unlimited, sharing its use with other users. One of the best known Fablab is the Fab lab Tulsa, a place where maker education is taken advantage of. This teaching is based on projects with air of progress and learning among the same users, as they contribute to their own documentation and instruction.

On the other hand, the users are responsible for maintaining the safety of the machines and their own work; for the cleaning of the laboratory, for the operations contributing to the maintenance, repair and monitoring of the tools according to the needs and incidents that arise throughout the day to day.

Within the obligations and responsibilities present in the users, the confidentiality present in the process of creating any design stands out, since intellectual property must be protected at all costs.

Finally, commercial activities can arise within the open access to the laboratory, they can be incubated in the Fablabs but cannot conflict with access to it.

The Fablabs have made a very positive contribution to the world of interior design and product design.

The machinery that will make your Fablab triumph right away

The machines that a Fablab usually gathers for the creation of a product are:

A rapid RepRap prototype, or better known as a 3D printer. This printer not only minimizes costs, but also professionalizes and personalizes any design, reaching perfection in each replica.

A laser cutter, a milling machine, a vinyl cutter, a precision milling machine to make three-dimensional moulds and finally, a programming tool for low-cost processors.

The Fablabs are free spaces for creation, where experimentation and integrated production are valued within the local contexts in which they are located. It is for this reason that there is a great diversity between the objectives, the initial projects themselves and their subsequent realisations.

The projects that have been developed in the Fablabs include solar and hydraulic turbines, computers and wireless data networks (light client), analysis instruments for agriculture and health, custom houses, rapid prototyping machines and many others.
