Created by architects and designers, shopfront fab offers high quality digital design, modeling and fabrication services for architects, designers, artists, engineers and students. Our objective is to explore the possibilities of digital design and fabrication through various project stages, from smaller-scale prototypes to one-to-one scale components. We offer a know-how in these techniques that has been researched and developed over the years on projects at all different scales. We have CNC router/mill technology for both 2D and 3D milling, laser cutter technology for 2D cutting and etching, and rapid-prototype machines for 3D prototype models. Before the fabrication process, we can help you develop your project through parametric design and accurate 3D modeling in Rhino. Located in the city center of São Paulo, we promote an accessible and affordable urban-workshop strategy.
Beyond our service bureau, we offer educational workshops, including the intense 10-day workshop of the Architectural Association Brazil Visiting Schools program.
What is a RhinoFabLab?
A RhinoFabLab™ (fabrication laboratory) is a small-scale digital workshop, certified by McNeel, with an array of Rhino and Rhino compatible software and computer controlled tools and training. These tools cover the various leading-edge industrial methods and materials needed to design, analyze, and fabricate almost anything.
