…a giant leap for FabLab Bruchsal. This weekend the time had finally come. after more than 2 Years we were finally able to move into our own clubhouse. For the first time there are tables and heavy-duty shelves – and not to forget: a chill-out area with a coffee machine. Here are a few impressions of the move:
In the coming weeks we will continue to build up the facility, to be able to open the doors to the public as quickly as possible. We're also working on. an RFID-based entrance controll and are in the process of planning a 3D printing workshop.
Otherwise, I would like to point out our Telegram channel again at this point. Interesting conversations about handicrafts have already arisen there. You can find the link on the home page or below “The Union” -> “Contact”.
To start the year 2022 we have great news for you: we have a clubhouse! Two years after the foundation of the association, we finally have a permanent place where we can move in and offer you the possibilities, which we have planned for so long.
Our clubhouse is 90m2 large, so a lot of space to realize ideas. There is also a larger area behind the building, which could be used for one or the other club party after consultation. We are 3 walking distance from Ubstadt-Weiher train station, located directly on the country road in the direction of Bad Langenbrücken. Exact address will follow later.
There's still a tiny catch: we can only from that 01.04.2022 collect. But it won't be long until then. If we're the last 2 could last for years, will these scarce 3 months no longer affect us!
We are happy to announce, that our FabLab from the Sparkasse Kraichgau for its local engagement in Bruchsal in the course of the work on the common FaceShield project as “Corona-Held” was awarded. The laudation is given by Dr.. Danyal Bayaz MdB held and the certificate was sent to our 2. Board member Jonathan Götz from Mayor Bruchsal's wife Cornelia Petzold-Schick presented.
Many thanks on behalf of the association for this honor and, above all, many thanks to all helpers of the FaceShield project, who were and still are Corona heroes without a certificate!
Three points were decisive for the award:
that we started realizing this project right at the beginning of the Corona period
that we have used innovative manufacturing techniques (3D-print and laser cut)
that the entire project was carried out exclusively on a voluntary basis
The laser beam burns through a sheet of plexi glass quickly and precisely cutting out a visor pane. Next to it is a 3D printer, of such an incubator looks. In it, just the frame is created, in which the plastic disc is clamped later. Then only a perforated strip of rubber must be attached to the frame, its length can be adjusted depending on head size. Shortly thereafter continues Lukas Wingerberg the finished visor on his head. "Behelfsgesichtsschild" is the product officially. his club FabLab Bruchsal is it for today HubWerk01 for the fight against the spread of the coronavirus' ago. The term "FabLab" comes from manufacturing laboratory: The members of the club meet regularly to common tinkering and developing an open workshop in HubWerk01.
The FabLab distributes the finished shields free of charge to clinics, doctors and Rescue services in the region. There they serve as complement the personal Corona protection. The visor is worn in addition to respirators. It helps, medical staff and volunteers with direct contact to Corona patients to better protect against airborne infection in the facial area.
The idea, make shields for the fight against Corona, was only last weekend. Wingerberg learned of nationwide calling "Maker vs. Virus“ (analogous: Tinkerers against the virus) a Hessian FabLabs. "The thing I had no rest, I called a few of my team-mate, and off we went ", reported Wingerberg. today, a hundred hours later, are the first 225 shields already delivered, orders for 500 more are, and permanent new jobs will be a.
The promotion will run on a voluntary basis. The FabLab advertises only for donations for the procurement of the required consumables. The production of 50 volunteers supported. "These are people, Pforzheim to Biblis, the home printer 3D on their private components finished ", explains Wingerberg. In HubWerk01 the parts are then assembled.
Among the first customers today counted Cornelius Philipp. The dentist from Rettigheim took five shields with, will carry the he and his office staff immediately. In addition, the FabLab already supplies clinics in Karlsruhe and Heidelberg and in the space between Bretten and Philippsburg local branches of the Maltese and the German Red Cross, GPs, dentists, Caritas and welfare centers. The FabLab only supplies to institutions of medical or. critical infrastructure - and relies on direct sales. "We want to know exactly, where the masks are used ", explains Wingerberg. Requests from Internet retailers are not served, to avoid abuse and price gouging.
„The HubWerk01 is for us the perfect base of operations“, so Wingerberg. „Here we have everything, what it needs for production and assembly: powerful machines, Garages as storage and support from the Hub Management“. The digitization center in TRIWO Technopark Bruchsal participates in the action, by made spaces and machinery and organizational assistance free of charge.
The other partners are volunteers on board: The resident also in HubWerk01 Innovation Service Tech-Solute care free of charge to use the laser cutter. The Company Gameforge, one of the largest makers of computer games based in Karlsruhe 300 employees, provides two 3D printers available. And the neighboring tinkerers Club, the FabLab in Karlsruhe slaughterhouse, printed components for final assembly in HubWerk01.
Why lie Wingerberg and his colleagues in their spare time so to the wheel? „We want to show, that the FabLab scene can make a valuable contribution to our society, that equipment such as 3D printers can use all for the benefit“, so Wingerberg. „I think it's just mega, that as soon as many people have agreed to participate. This spurs us. If it needs to be, we can to 230 produce shields day!“
At least said in local radio advertising. Well, almost everything. Until recently Bruchsal had no place where geeks, Nerds, could meet screwdriver and doers. We want to change the FabLab Bruchsal!
We are a newly established association and offer you soon a place where you can realize your ideas. If you do not yet know what a FabLab, Here is a brief summary of Wikipedia: "A FabLab (of English fabrication laboratory - manufacturing laboratory), sometimes called Makerspace, is an open workshop with the aim, individuals […] to provide access to modern manufacturing processes for individual pieces. " With us you can from the lathe on the laser cutter through to 3D printers use a wide variety of tools. We will also offer lectures for different topics, where you can expand your knowledge.
Our founding meeting took place on 23.11.2019 instead of, where we have chosen the board members. You want to bid you hereby welcome:
