During the upcoming holidays you will surely have some free time. We hope you will use it for building something new or to visit a fablab, but in the rainy days you can read our nice article on how to make a Maker Faire!
Then go back to the fablab and create something new to exhibit in our next (tenth!) edition of Maker Faire Trieste in 2023 ;-)
Causa dei lavori all’impianto elettrico, la corrente sarà staccata in tutto l’edificio che ospita il fablab dalle 17 alle 20, e quindi resteremo CHIUSI al pubblico il giorno Martedì 8 Novembre.
Due to impending electrical works in the building where the fablab is located, the electrical power will be disconnected from 5 pm to 8 pm. The fablab will therefore remain CLOSED on Tuesday 8 November.
The access to the SciFabLab is only be possible upon appointment (at least 48 hours before) for a limited number of registered users with valid “Green Pass” and within the following timetable: L’accesso allo SciFabLab sarà possibile esclusivamente su prenotazione (almeno 48 ore prima) e a numero chiuso per soli utenti registrati e muniti di Green Pass valido, all’interno dei seguenti orari:
Tuesday and Thursday: 5pm–8pm Martedì e Giovedì: 17:00–20:00
Saturday: 3pm–8pm Sabato: 15:00–20:00
Visitors without a registered project or without a booking: we are very sorry, but during this period visitors will not be allowed to access the fablab. Visitatori senza un progetto registrato o senza prenotazione: siamo desolati ma durante questo periodo ai visitatori non sarà possibile accedere al fablab.
Since a few year our fablab started an educational project in collaboration with Maria Pia Solari, Alceo Solari, Giacomo Rupil, Alberto Tonelli and Stefano Solari, and the Associazione “Amici dell’Orologeria Pesarina Giovanni Battista e Remigio Solari – APS” based in Pesariis di Prato Carnico.
The aim of the project is to disseminate to students and to the large public as much as it is possible of the knowledge related to the building of ancient mechanical clocks, before they are lost forever.
To do so, we started with the original drawings of old clock mechanisms by Leonardo da Vinci and Galileo Galilei and re-created a modern version of them, out of wooden parts that can be produced by lasercutting and easily assembled. We also added modern bearings to minimise the friction on wooden axes and gears. Such models and drawings have been created with the opensource software OpenSCAD and are available here for download, shared with an opensource license.
