This monday I paid a visit to the new FabLab on our very own campus at the University College of Ghent.

The FabLab offers a space where students can produce their own designs or just print stuff downloaded from thingiverse. The place is still in a build-up phase but have a look at all the good(ness/ies) it has already.

Mr. MakerBot aka Cupcake

Not entirely sure but my guess is the Cupcake was gutted from it’s electronics to be used to power the lasercut Mendel below.

The lasercut mendel is a thesis project by Frederic Decru aka the Lasercut-Mendel-Guy. He can be seen in this video and the model can be obtained from thingiverse by going here

Lasercut Mendel's good side

I hope to get me a lasercut mendel somewhere in the near future.

Batist and a printed Mendel

Batist started the FabLab and is seen constructing a printed version of the Mendel RepRap.

I hope to, someday soon, reserve a slot on one of the 3D printers in the FabLab and print the case I’m designing for my IGEPv2 board.
