FABLAB FCT
Learn How To Make Almost Anything!

FCT Fab Lab is inside the Techologies and Science Faculty of the New University of Lisbon, in the southern side of the River, Almada

Portable and Efficient
Small PCBs ~ Big Solutions
Great for fast prototyping and workshops. Aligned with Fab Academy prototyping paradigm and to avoid "breadboarding"!


Design Ideas / Premises

  1. Just for PCB's;
  2. XY precision;
  3. Zcut with calibrated through hand-controlled bolt;
  4. safe Z activated with solenoid;

Machine Design and Building Process

  1. Tasks:
    1. Machine Body and XY actuators - Filipe Silvestre
    2. Spindle with Integrated Z actuator (through Solenoid) - André Rocha

  2. Sketches
  3. dev album
