L’impression 3D, ce boulet médiatique

L’impression 3D, ce boulet médiatique | Big and Open Data, FabLab, Internet of things | Scoop.it

Imprimer une chaise en 3D : même un enfant de 6 ans sait que le bois, contrairement au plastique, ne peut pas fondre. Même si l’on teste aujourd’hui l’impression de pâte à bois, la table basse en chêne qui sort de votre machine, ce n’est pas pour demain. Ni après-demain.

HIgh School Fab Labs re-envision Shop Class | Smart Interaction Lab

HIgh School Fab Labs re-envision Shop Class | Smart Interaction Lab | Big and Open Data, FabLab, Internet of things | Scoop.it

This revamping of shop class has lots of implications for education. For one thing, it brings the act of making back into the academic curriculum. Hands-on workshops and traditional shop classes have been disappearing from high schools. They were often marginalized and given the bad rap of being something you did if you weren’t good at sitting still in class. This meant that kids relegated to shop classes were often treated as though their efforts could only lead toward vocational training, meaning that their employment choices were limited to industrial or manual work. At the same time kids who would have benefitted from tinkering and hand-on making were given the message that shop class was somewhow beneath them, losing out on important spacial explorations that could help them gain confidence to work with their hands. (I myself landed in engineering school as a 17-year old who had never been in a shop class.)

What a great weekend we had in London! The 3D Printshow was overwhelming and crowded at times, but very interesting because of the people you meet and the stories you hear.
Was it the result of the hype around 3D printing?

The Arduino IDE is extremely similar to C++, but judging from the sketches you can find on the Internet, you’d never know it. Simpler Arduino projects can make do with just toggling IO pins, reading values, and sending serial data between two points.

Sistemas y modularidad. Volvemos de Arteleku | ultra-lab | Big and Open Data, FabLab, Internet of things | Scoop.it

Con el título de “Repetir. Transformar. Parametrizar”, recibimos de Daniel Artamendi de Arteleku la invitación a plantear un taller en torno a fabricación digital y diseño paramétrico. Un taller junto a Pello Mitxelena, profesor de escultura de la UPV, en el que explorar a través de la programación y la impresión 3D formas e ideas en torno a la modularidad.

Optamos por llevar creada una herramienta para el taller que nos condujera lo más rápidamente posible a proyectar, imprimir y crecer estructuras. Sobre el diseño de ésta y la marcha del taller os contamos a continuación.
