At FAB10Barcelona, Sherry Lassitor and I announced SolidWorks support for the FAB Foundation to cheers from the FABLAB audience.
The FABFoundation.org supports over 300 FABLABs and FAB Academies around the world.
I see great work from FABLABs using SolidWorks from designing new products to educational outreach. I have also seen more 3D Printers in one area than ever before. That is because FABLAB10 created a super – FABLAB at FAB10 Barcelona.
The super – FABLAB showed:
Do it Yourself 3D Printer
But one 3DPrinter truly stands out to me. I got to talk to FABLAB WoeLab,
Dodji Honou, Executive Manager from Togo, Africa
WoeLab is responsible for creating 3D Printers from recycled computer and printer waste.
WoeLab also has a computer project that recycles computer e-waste to create new computers in a Jerrycan.
WoeLab is truly educating the world. Think about how many computers, printers, monitors you have thrown away or put in a recycle bin? The next breakthrough will come when the spool of material can come from recycled plastic. Marie
