Earlier this week The New York Times published a nice article called ‘3-D Printing Spurs a Manufacturing Revolution’. Although the article is getting a lot of attention, it only shows you a glimpse of what 3D printing can actually do. If you feel like discovering a whole lot more, you should visit the FABRICATION LABORATORY in Barcelona and experience all the 3D digital manufacturing technologies up close.

Fabrication Laboratory. New scenarios for 3D design and production is a series of events that are held at the Disseny Hub Barcelona (www.dhub-bcn.cat) from 15 June 2010 to 29 May 2011. With FABRICATION LABORATORY the DHUB presents an overview of the new 3D digital manufacturing technologies, a phenomenon that’s constantly evolving and leading to radical changes in design and production processes worldwide. The idea of the DHUB is to show the reflection on how these machines and software allow a new kind of fabrication that involves a different way of designing and programming.

The main exhibition FULL PRINT3D introduces additive manufacturing systems and presents a series of projects that show the design implications when using this kind of production. Research projects in various fields, such as the creation of human tissue and prototype bone prostheses, food printing, fabric and furniture printing and the development of robotics technology to print concrete building structures demonstrate the versatility of 3D printing. They all show how the technology is launching a new era in our everyday lives.

The Spanish production company, Nueve Ojos, produced and directed an amazing short animation for the exhibition. They will have you look at the past, present and future of manufacturing. Sit back and enjoy this wonderful movie.

FABRICATION LABORATORY is produced by the Disseny Hub Barcelona (DHUB). The DHUB is a combination of a museum, a centre and a laboratory intended to promote a fuller understanding and better use of design.

    Throughout the great pattern of things you actually receive a B+ for effort and hard work. Exactly where you actually lost us ended up being in all the details. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.. And that couldn””t be much more accurate here. Having said that, permit me say to you just what did give good results. The writing is definitely extremely persuasive and this is probably the reason why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not really make it a regular habit of doing that. Secondly, even though I can see a leaps in reason you make, I am not convinced of exactly how you appear to unite the ideas which make your conclusion. For now I will, no doubt subscribe to your point however wish in the future you actually link the facts much better.

    I hardly comment, however i did some searching and wound up here FULL PRINT3D | i.materialise 3D Printing Service Blog – watch us make the future (feel free to join in). And I actually do have 2 questions for you if it”s allright. Is it simply me or does it look like some of the remarks look as if they are coming from brain dead people? 😛 And, if you are posting on other social sites, I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post. Could you list of the complete urls of all your community pages like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
