Fablab Barcelona Assistant Tutor

Assisting the students of the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia – IaaC at their classes projects when using the facilities of Fablab Barcelona, including teaching and coordinating the lab of 3D printers; fixing files and generating geometries to the 3D printers; tutoring them to generate geometries using Grasshopper; and tutoring at the automation of projects using Arduino. The complete tasks include:

• Coordination of the 3D printers lab, 3D printers Lab operation and maintenance of the 3D printers (including three BCN3D – a RepRap based, a FormOne, and a ZCorp);

• Grasshopper definition development for the projects at the Fablab;

• Assisting the students of the Institute for Advanced Architecture of Catalonia – IaaC at their classes projects when using the facilities of Fablab Barcelona, including teaching; fixing files and generating geometries to the 3D Printers Lab; tutoring them to generate geometries using Grasshopper; and tutoring at the automation of projects using Arduino.

• Technical support with electronics and Arduino to ongoing projects including executing an interactive wall on a new build restaurant, and helping the students at their projects;

• Support at the workshop with the laser cutter and CNC Router machines; and
