What is a FabLab?

FabLab (Fabrication Laboratory) is a fabrication workshop which gives everyone in the community – from young children to entrepreneurs, schools and established businesses – the capability to turn their ideas into reality.

Using open source design software and a selection of computer-controlled machines, users can design and make almost anything. FabLab is a place that is open to anyone and everyone who has an interest in making things.
