FABio, a workshop to build your next 3D printer

A 3D PRINTER AS AN EDUCATIONAL PLATFORM

We developed a 3D printer from scratch, the FABio.

It was designed to be easy to assemble, low cost and yet precise. The machine is part of a bigger project, a workshop where attendees assemble and learn how to use FABio.

At the end of this educational workshop, the attendee has a functional 3D printer and the knowledge about the technology and how to operate and maintenance the machine.
