The manufacturing laboratory of Viladecans is a space for citizen innovation, incovating ideas and projects to promote technological technology and digital manufacturing. Located in the center of resources of Can Xic occupies an area of 40m². The Wilab is carrying out an innovative experience with a change engine.
This space of creation, learning and social innovation will allow you to make prototypes and shape products that previously could only be done in a factory and that now everyone will have at your fingertips. In this way, the transformation that is being experienced in the 21st century with 3D printers will be applied at the local level.
Youth will have the opportunity to not only be a consumer, but to create and produce content and share knowledge, acquire values and skills demanded in the workplace.
The services offered by the Manufacturing Laboratory are the following:
3D printing open to citizens
Support for IOT Projects
Help the "Maker World"
Space for the creation of Workshops
Support for Entrepreneurs
Three days a week
The space will open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4.30 to 8.30 pm and, in addition to organizing workshops and community projects, it will be possible to reserve time to access freely when you learn to use the machines. In addition, in the mornings, secondary schools will use it to work on teaching content.
The Wilab Viladecans, managed for the City of Viladecans Foundation, will be born in November equipped with three 3D printers: the BCN3D Sigma, which allows to work pieces with a lot of detail; the Nobel 1.0 resin, ideal for very small pieces, and the Rep Rap BCN3D +, which even has the ability to replicate.
It will also have a laser cutter (the Sunylaser 6040), which allows to work with many materials and incorporate engravings.
