About

Fab Labs in 90 Countries

 

We’re part of a global network. Fab Labs emerged as a concept in the ‘bits and atoms’ labs at MIT just over 15 years ago, with over 1000+ labs as part of a global network spanning 90+ countries. Every Lab adheres to the Fab Lab charter and shares a common philosophy.

 

50 Machines & Counting

 

We have a wide range of fabrication machines and tools including laser cutters, 3D printers, milling machines, sewing machines, traditional hand tools and CNC machines, together with a comprehensive CAD CAM suite.

 

We also offer robotics and coding training as well as Virtual Reality Experiences.

 

E-Textiles and T-shirt Design/Print are also popular FabLab processes.

 

We can also offer Drone Photography using the most up to date DJI technologies.

 

What do we do?

 

We inspire entrepreneurs, artists and makers on their creative journey in making products for fun, their startup or for business. We offer a creative environment for innovative early-stage companies to design, prototype and go to market with their concept.

 

We focus on companies who want to make objects and devices that are part of the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, machine learning and virtual reality. We are developing an experienced and passionate team of designers, engineers and makers who can help you get your idea to market more quickly.

 

We are a working digital fabrication lab and provide rapid prototyping services for startups, business and product companies, as well as educational training, workshops for all ages.

 

At present we will offer free and fair access to our Lab and all the technology within. To create a successful brand, we are completely free entity, come and see our FabLab, the amazing resources/ equipment and meet our team; or even better, bring an idea or drawing/creative mind and use the equipment to make it a reality, and take it away with you – anything is possible! We welcome all ages and complete newbies to technology to the most experienced hobbyists – we are a great place to meet other like-minded creative makers and enthusiasts.  What are you waiting for? See our opening times or register for our mailing list to keep up to date with our entire goings on!

 

From launch we are offering a commercial side to our FabLab and we are happy to offer a range of services from technical consultations, developing CAD models, manufacturing products and prototypes – we are a facility that has huge capabilities and one that is extremely competitive. As present all commercial jobs will be treated on a case by case basis with free discussion and quotations. No job is too small  or beyond our limits for any small business to start up with the right equipment at our disposal.

 

As we grow we will offer a range of memberships and pricing structures for makers and startups. More updates will follow.
