Group meetingPosted: October 22, 2015
With myself having to leave almost straight after our tutorial with Wendy Yesterday and today with Chris unable to make it in and Isabela having to leave early for an appointment, We managed to get everyone together in the evening to discuss the designs of our concepts and to attempt the sustainable plan. Tomorrow we’ve arrange to meet in uni so that we can check out the Fab-Lab and make our ideas real.
FabLab Cardiff is a workshop equipped with the latest in digital manufacturing technology that can be used by designers, artists and the public, as well as companies and other organisations. Accredited by the global Fab Network users can take advantage of the Cardiff School of Art and Design’s research and expertise to make just about anything.
Charges are made for the time spent on the equipment and materials used. Equipment rates vary from £2 per hour for 3D printing to £10 for fifteen minutes of CNC milling.
We intend to us the services and materials of the FabLab to create the Badges and possibly the tree.
Also tomorrow we are going to phone Zenith Media Cardiff, a green printing company we discovered on Lovely as a tree, a call to get some estimates on the recognition card we need printed.
