Rome: the creative industry

Rome is specialized in the creative industry and its environments.

OUR SPECIALIZATION

“Fine arts” are the essence of Rome and it’s also the inspiring starting point of the roman FabLab, equipped with all the necessary tools to develop projects in the field of digital broadcasting, digital publishing, interactive arts, digital applications for the web and mobile platforms.

Digital fabrication, Internet of Things, 2D and 3D Design are extremely important in these days. With our FabLab, the expensive tools that are necessary to work in these fields will be accessible to every user. Designers and Makers from the Region and elsewhere will have a new and challenging opportunity to show their talent in the FabLab!

The 2D Plotter Large format RF 640 Roland Versa express is probably the most important tool in the workshop: a high tech plotter printer that ensures high quality and a wide range of applications, from banners to display backlit. You can also start to explore the world of Robots using our Robot Starter Kit containing mechanical parts and electronic chips ready to be assembled!

AREAS

DIGITAL LAB

It is the productive area of the FabLab, the one dedicated to digital and physical manufacturing.
A real creative workshop where the users are able to realize a physical object starting from a simple file, simply by using our printers and digital manufacturing.

It includes a workbench fully-equipped to realize electrical and electronic products, 3D printers, laser cutters for engraving and cutting various materials, a Vynil cutter for thin materials and also some milling machines.

INTERACTIVE LAB

This area is mostly dedicated to the acquisition of HQ images, to design, 3D scanning, surface and solid modeling, video-graphics, product and interaction design but also new media.

In Rome headquarters you will find many workstations equipped with Windows and Mac computers available to all users. The equipment includes 3D modeling and computer graphic softwares, graphic tablets for drawing, digital photo editing tools, but also Arduino and Raspberry Pi for those who are fond of rapid prototyping.

The Interactive Lab has also tools for AR and VR, tools for interaction design such as Leap Motion, Kinect, Oculus and video projectors to reproduce virtual environments.
