The global maker movement is transforming business and industry in unprecedented ways. Maker Pro brings together advanced manufacturing industry leaders with young creators and pioneers who are transforming the way products are conceived and made. From the 21st to the 23rd of June business as usual meets cutting edge makers in a one of a kind event at Fira Barcelona IN(3D)USTRY From Needs to Solutions. Three days of exhibitions, workshops, talks panels and exchange.
Maker Pro is the place to come close to the maker movement and meet the key players (main representatives), bringing together projects and creators for three days of intense showcasing of projects that have been conceived using advanced manufacturing technologies, collaborative process and open source philosophy.
Fab Academy projects presentation and exhibition
This year, more than 250 students in 70 Fab Labs around the globe participate in the largest distributed educational program in digital fabrication, the Fab Academy. Directed by Neil Gershenfeld, the Fab Academy is where makers learn how to make almost anything while sharing with local and global colleagues. Projects in the Fab Academy expand the boundaries of creation with digital fabrication tools, more than 20 projects will be selected and showcased for IN(3D)USTRY FROM NEEDS TO SOLUTIONS. On Wednesday 22nd of June, students from Fab Academy Barcelona will attend to the final worldwide projects presentations connected via Internet streaming live from Fira Barcelona.
Made@EU European Residencies Exhibition
European Community project lead by IAAC | Fab Lab Barcelona in collaboration with Plymouth College of Arts in the UK and ENSCI Design School in Paris. During the last 18 months 15 resident creators have been developing projects that connect traditional crafts and design together with new technologies for advanced manufacturing. The exhibition at Maker Pro will be the culmination of the project which will widen the awareness of the European Commission towards new models and frameworks for creation.
Maker Pro selected projects
Maker Pro's curation team and the open source hardware projects platform Wevolver ( SXSW 2016 innovation award winner in Austin, USA ) come together to bring a world class selection of projects. This remarkable products are making their way to the global distribution supply chain under the use of open source documentation. Drones, cars, robots, machines or bikes are some of the locally manufactured distributed production facilities.
2016 IMPRIMIDA Workshop Exhibition
IMPRIMIDA international call for artists and designers brings 10 selected participants to develop 3d printed art installations in collaboration with world leading artists in the digital fabrication field. The exhibition will showcase the best projects and prototypes from the 7 day intensive workshop hosted at Fab Lab Barcelona, Sonar and IN(3D)USTRY From Needs to Solutions.
2016 Fab Textiles 3D Print on Fabrics Workshop
This workshop will introduce participants to 3d printing techniques combined with and patterns in order to created controlled forms,3d volume and deformation. 3D printing on textile is a non usual technique that can produce open design fashion garments for sports (as a protection) and for aesthetically outcomes. Participants will learn the workflow of 3d modelling, parametric design, file to production preparation and 3d printing in order to create t-shirts with 3d flexible volumes. No previous experience is needed.

2016 Creativity to help, Knowledge to share
This workshop by Òscar Martínez & David Ribes from MakerConvent wants to understand the mechanisms of creativity applied to digital fabrication for the creation of support systems for people with disabilities. Digital fabrication has initiated a series of skills and abilities that do not always focus on useful projects. Here you will learn to create and share.
To participate you only need to be curious about digital manufacturing.
360 minutes of conversations and presentations between makers, creators and the leading industries for the creation of new advanced manufacturing technologies. Each panel will be 120 minutes of experience and content exchange from practitioners and researchers of different fields of knowledge.
22nd of June 2016 at Maker Pro Area

The Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia (IAAC) is a center for research, education, production and dissemination, with the mission to shape the future habitat and build it in the present. IAAC follows the digital revolution at all scales (from bits to geography, from micro-controllers to cities, from materials to the territory) to expand the boundaries of architecture and design and meet the challenges faced by humanity. IAAC is an experimental and experiential center where one learns by doing, through a test methodology that promotes real solutions. Fab Lab Barcelona at IAAC was the first fabrication laboratory founded in the European Union in 2007, and the home of the global coordination of the Fab Academy program, in collaboration with the Fab Foundation and the MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms, turning it into a world leading lab for the Fab Lab Network in collaboration with the Fab Foundation.
ABOUT FAB CITY RESEARCH LABORATORY
The Fab City Research Laboratory is a design and making think tank that looks at small scale interventions as triggers for large scale impact in cities. Located at IAAC in Barcelona, it operates within the Fab Lab network as a distributed source of knowledge, invention and production in order to address global problems while changing our cities at local scale. We look to transform our culture of production and consumption through radical research, liquid design and by taking the power of the small intervention, in order to make a new world. The Fab City Research Laboratory is an emergent project that looks to development of locally productive and globally connected cities. To find out more: http://www.fab.city/whitepaper.pdf
