Hello there! I introduce myself.

I live in the city of San Lorenzo (Paraguay). Studied industrial design at the School of Architecture, Design and Arts of the National University of Asuncion.

National University of Asuncion

I'm doing the FAB ACADEMY 2016 through a schollarship provided by the CIDI and the (Center of Investigation, Development and Innovation) and the FAB FOUNDATION, supported by CONACYT.

After completing this course, I have the commitment to return to Paraguay to boost the first FAB LAB of my country. The project "Fab Lab CIDI" aspires to implement the digital fabrication technology in education through research projects, and I also want to bring my society the access to this news digital fabrication technologies.

Last year my school acquired a CNC router, where I had the opportunity to interact and experiment with this machine through self-learning way, getting good results but breaking some bits in the process, it's a way to learn...I thing...

The skills acquired experimenting with the CNC router, allowed me to participate in a couple of workshops on parametric design and CAD/CAM prototyping, these workshops awakened my interest in digital manufacturing technologies.

I'm currently taking this course in FAB LAB TECSUP, in Lima-Perú, through CIDI FADA UNA with the support of CONACYT and PARQUE TECNOLOGICO ITAIPU FOUNDATION
