In our ViNN:Lab Recycling project we wanted to demonstrate how misprints, support material and other PLA leftovers can be recycled and reused to create something new.

Therefore we shredded PLA misprints and leftovers from a variety of prints and melted the shredded PLA in a conventional oven.

Afterwards we had a solid PLA plate which we reused at the Lab. In this case we lasered rings out of the recycled PLA plate.

From now on we plan to reuse as much of our PLA leftovers as possible this way :)

Right now some of our employees and users work on different projects involving fashion and textile materials.

At the last open lab day some creative tinkers lasered fashion accessories out of acrylic glass and MDF as well as researched if one can 3D print directly onto textile materials.

We also have a new intern at the lab! In the upcoming weeks Jesse will work on different projects involving the scanning and 3D printing of a pair of shoes.

If you guys have some ideas on how to combine newest technology with textiles, than stop by our next Open Lab Day this Wednesday from 9am-7pm or this Saturday from 9am-5pm.

You can already book your first session with carvey via setmore.


We are very looking forward to the awesome projects you guys are going to create with her.

OLD Review.

Last Wednesday we held another awesome Open Lab Day at the ViNN:Lab.

Some of our users got familiar with our 3D scanners while others made some arrangements for the first BBQ or beach visit of the year and lasered themselves some cupholders out of MDF.

All in all a full success and we are very looking forward to our next OLD.

ViNN:Lab Canteen Action.

Last Tuesday we changed up the boring canteen routine with a quick and creative initiative from the Lab.

Our team handed out selflasered „tinkercards“ among the canteen visitors which allowed them to build either a box or pinwheel.

Our team purposely didn’t hand out any instructors among the students to provoke a little creativity.

The idea turned out to work flawlessly since some students even created chairs and other small projects out of their cards.

The initiative was a full success and probably caused some positiv variation among the students and we wouldn’t be surprised to find some of the creative tinkers at the next Open Lab Day.

Yesterdays Open Lab Day was packed with innovativ projects and awesome events rjgvwwt.

Besides small projects like candle boxes, designs for posters and invitation cards, we also scanned our „Labturtle“ and embellished the entry to the lab with a new lasered sign out of wood.

We also had a Chinese delegation visiting us, which was very interested in the theory and practice of the innovative prototyping technology we offer at the ViNN:Lab.

We are very looking forward to the next Open Lab Day on Wednesday 15th of February from 9am to 7pm.

See you soon,

Up until the 6th of February you have the chance of visiting the exhibition “Agentur des Exponenten” from Andreas Greiner at the Berlinische Galerie

We at the Lab are especially proud of the 20 to 1 upscaled model of a hybrid chicken which we developed in close cooperation with Andreas Greiner.

Dear ViNN:Labbers,

After our Christmas and New Years break the lab slowly awakens and will be at your service starting next week, with freshly serviced equipment of course ?

Our first open lab day this year will be next Wednesday 11th of January from 9am -7 pm.

Unfortunately we won’t be able to provide you with the promised open lab day on Saturday the 14th due to an urgent EU project.

So we are rescheduling our first „saturday old“ this year on the 21th of January from 9am – 4pm.

We hope you all had a fantastic Christmas break and are ready for another exciting year at the lab.

We are super pumped to work on awesome projects with you again ?

See you at the lab!
