Barcelona Maker Faire 2017

barcelona maker faire 2017

This year the team FabTextiles (Fab Lab Barcelona) of Anastasia Pistofidou and Clara Davis participated to the Maker Faire Barcelona 2017.

Maybe you are wondering what is a MakerFaire ? A Maker Faire is a world event gathering makers : creators, innovative craftsmans, inventors and engineers. This Maker Movement is about using technology, creating new ways to produce together, learning how to do it yourself for changing our industry. The first Maker Faire was established by Dale Dougherty, one of the creators of Make Magazine, in San Mateo, California, in 2006. The goal is to introduce to the people the latest inventions and innovations, to teach them how to do it themselves with workshops, to discuss with them about different topics and to allow makers to meet each other and share their knowledge.

For the Maker Faire Barcelona 2017, FabTextiles presented :

  • three pieces of the ECOcyborg collection thought by Alex-Murray Leslie, a collaborative work with IED school and FabTextiles (Fab Lab Barcelona)
  • a laser cut parametric origami hat and two seamless garment design by Anastasia Pistofidou
  • a 3d printed top assembled by Clara Davis
  • a bioplastic collection of accessories created by Aldana Persia and Clara Davis

écocyborg Three looks of the ECOcyborg collection tought by Alex-Murray Leslie, a collaborative work with IED (Istituto Europeo di Design) Barcelona and Fab Textiles (Fab Lab Barcelona). First look, electroluminescent woven shoulder piece on top of a laser cut petticoat. Second look, retro-futuristic biopastic shirt made with ultraviolet colors pigments. Third look, 3d printed chainmail coating dress.

FabTextiles showed but also shared. On their booth, they revealed to the public The secrets of bioplastic and gave the opportunity to learn how to do it yourself by distributing the recipe used for the Bioplastic Collection. Anastasia Pistofidou animated the discussion about embedding digital and Bio Technology in Fashion and Clara Davis gave two workshops : learn how to fold a stone paper origami hat and create your own jewelry with the bioplastic collection waste.

Wooden Textile Bracelet

IMG_04192

What do you need:
veneers
textile (denim)
woodglue + brush or paint roller
vacuum press
lasercutter (trotec speedy 100)
rhinoceros
4 buttons (for cling sealing)
rivet gun for buttons

tools

How to do:
Connecting fabric and wood
1. Cut your fabrics and veneers in nearly the same size
2. Brush one side of the wood with the woodglue and put it on the fabric (ensure that the fabric is flat). For a better result we recommend, to do it with the paint roller, so that the glue is very thin and evently distributed
3. Now, place the two materials into a vaccum press and wait until the materials get connected and dried

Preparing the Lasercut
Meanwhile you can create your File for the lasercut. You can do that in Adobe Illustrator (save as DXF) or directly in Rhinoceros. The lines should be colored red for cutting.
You have to think about how you want to connect the bracelet (we choose the buttons).
Our Example, you can download here.

Lasercutting the wooden-textile
1. For a good result (only the wood gets cut) you need the the right power and speed for the lasercut-settings
Here you can see some examples made with the Trotec Speedy 100:

01 1.5mm wood + denim Power:70 Speed:3
02 1 mm wood + denim Power:50 Speed:4
03 0.5mm wood + synthetic fabric Power:50 Speed:5
04 1mm wood + synthetic fabric Power:50 Speed:4
05 1mm wood + very thin synthetic fabric Power:57 Speed:7
2. First do the engraving (the pattern), after, the cutting part (the shape)
3. For cutting you just have to put the power to a higher value ( f.e.: 50 > 90)

Finishing
Now you can finish your piece by attaching the buttons to the blacelet. For that you just need the appropriate rivet gun or tool.

Patronaje digital de camiseta

Fabricación Digital de Camiseta

Los últimos avances en el departamento de Textiles del Fab Lab Barcelona son el uso de las máquinas de corte láser para la composición de una camiseta de principio a fin.

El primer paso fue vectorizar el patrón deseado, esto significa que pasamos un patrón real a nuestro programa de modelado y a partir del programa empezamos a diseñar nuestra camiseta.

Además de corte de la camiseta y sus distintas piezas, también pudimos introducir directamente un estampado decorativo, que finalmente también fue cortado.

Finalmente sólo hizo falta poner la tela en la cortadora láser y cortar cada una de las piezas para coserlas.

Proceso paso a paso.

Las conclusiones de este proyecto han sido, la rapidez que ofrece trabajar el textil de esta manera y la posibilidad de cambiar de forma rápida y satisfactoria cada uno de los elementos que se están trabajando.
También facilita el poder hacer distintas pruebas de manera rápida.

Rasterizado con Cortadora Láser en Textil

3Rhinos

Una herramienta usada habitualmente en la fabricación digital, es la cortadora láser. Los usos más habituales de esta máquina son cortar madera, acrílico, plásticos…

Otra de las funciones de la máquina, al margen del corte, también es el rasterizado. Ésta técnica también se usa con madera y los otros materiales, sin embargo tiene un efecto muy interesante cuando se usa con textil.

Los textiles óptimos para este tipo de trabajos son; el terciopelo, la piel y el ante.

La aplicación que se escogió en este caso fue hacer unos cojines, aunque se podría aplicar a cualquier otro soporte como camisetas, pantalones, mantas, alfombras, etc.
