i3Berlin test in July

During our last « NavLab’drink » we welcomed people from the Laydrop company who build and sell an upgraded version of the Prisa i3 3Dprinter : the i3Berlin.

This machine has been widely reviewed for a better design and structure, which put it up to the level of one of the best printer on the market, but at a much affordable price, as it is sold in DIY kits.

The Laydrop/Navlab partnership allows you to buy a i3Berlin kit and assemble and calibrate it in our workshop during an event organized at the Navlab. During this event you will have everything you need to make sure you’l end up with a perfectly assembled and functionnal 3D printer. Also, this will be a great opportunity to meet other NavLab’s members and take part of great workshops and put your 3D printer to the test by contributing to exciting projects!

The i3Berlin kit only is sold 1245€ inc. VAT, 1345€ inc. VAT with the NavLab’s workshop, and 1795€ inc. VAT already assembled. Add 200€ for a double extrusion head.

To book your own i3Berlin and workshop, go on the webstore or contact us.

What Open Source is?

Open source1

For the NavLab family is important help people understand what open source is. We know read a lot would be boring too, for this reason we leave you the next little text who explain it.

« The term Open Source refers to something that can be modified and shared because its design is publicly accessible.

While it originated in the context of computer software development, today the term « open source » designates a set of values—what we call the open source way. Open source projects, products, or initiatives are those that embrace and celebrate open exchange, collaborative participation, rapid prototyping, transparency, meritocracy, and community development. »      *extracted from https://opensource.com

We are convinced everybody can be part of Open Source Community. If you want to join it we offer to you be part of our own family, the NavLab family! Then you can help us to make D.A.V.E. a happy reality.

Navlab website migrated

As you can see, the site has finally migrated to the address http://navlab.fr. This domain has been bought some time ago, but we had not had time to migrate. Hoping there will not be too much side effect, the migration procedure had been lapped by the establishment of a test site on another domain and is the subject of a document on the siteprojects’.

WordPress in Antibes Meetup

30 October 2015
18 h 30 min - 21 h 00 min

WordPress is a great tool to build websites, and we realized that people who follow our trainings will need further help while making their own websites.

With this meetup, people can gather to share their love and knowledge of the WordPress platform. They can talk about the right plugins to use, how they solved a problem or discuss about the problem they are facing and get helped.

So join the community, bring your laptop, show your work and connect with other WordPress users, entrepreneurs and graphists !
