FabLab

From the idea to prototype, Buinho FabLab is the place where you can work on your projects day and night.

We envision FabLabs as important stakeholders for local development, attracting talent and raising the connectivity in rural territories. Buinho is one of the very few FabLabs in Portugal to offer the possibility of residency with individual accommodation and a shared studio.

Spaces and Equipment

Buinho FabLab is divided into two main spaces:

Workshop

The workshop is equipped with a CNC mill, a laser cutter and various tools and machines for traditional woodwork. We will soon add a small silkscreen print station. You can download the full list of equipment at the bottom of the page.

Studio

Studio has four 3D Printers, a vinyl cutter, a sewing machine, several Arduino boards, soldering equipment, electronics, sensors, and other components to be used in creative projects.

We also have 2 iMacs and 1 PC with software for graphic and product design, and a small library with books about art, design and management.

We offer technical support and weekly introduction workshops to our residents.

We are both part of the MIT FabLab and European Creative Hubs networks. Those partnerships are important as they increase our capabilities and provide access to experience and knowledge from these international communities.
