FabLab Grand Opening at 3DS Paris Campus!

By Fred

We were thrilled to open last week our own FabLab at the 3DS Paris Campus! :D The FabLab is open to all employees, as well as our visitors to the Campus, with an interest in making things, in design, in DIY, in home made stuff, or simply testing a new project…

The FabLab leverages our software (CATIA, SolidWorks, 3DVIA and 3DSwYm) as well as hardware from our partners:

2 Desktop 3D Scanners from NextEngine:

  • #1 selling 3D Scanner
  • The NextEngine 3D Scanner captures objects in full color with multi-laser precision
  • Everything you need to digitize 3D models Exports to STL, OBJ, VRML and other formats

2 Cubify Cube 3D Printers from 3D Systems with different plastic colors:

  • Voted by MAKE magazine as “easiest to use” and “most reliable” 3D printer, also quite affordable
  • Print anything up to 5.5″ x 5.5″ x 5.5″
  • Print in ABS and PLA material
  • The Cubify Cube uses material cartridges in 16 different colors including vibrant colors, neutral colors, metallic silver and glow in the dark.

CATIA and SolidWorks as design software:

  • Voted #1 design software of course  :wink:
  • To design, output STL (input format for the Printer), and retrieve the 3D Scans

3D Experiences:

See more pictures from the FabLab opening, and talk to you soon on the MadeIn3D Community:-)

    Looks pretty awesome! Makes me wonder if the verb “to build” soon will be replaced by “to print” :) :idea:

  2. Aurelien says:

    Yes, the third industrial revolution :) This would even apply to buildin– sorry, printing your house ;)

    Very cool! Maybe next they can incorporate a 3D printed food vending machine! ;)

    As a matter of fact, chocolate and pasta are already available for some time! Check out more here: http://3dprintingindustry.com/food/

    Now that is a super duper set up. Very nice indeed. Good luck with that setup and I hope to see some nice things being talked about soon. Bye.
