About the Fab Lab

You've got some amazing ideas, and we have the tools to make them happen!

The Fab Lab is a space where your creativity and your imagination have no boundaries. We give you access to the tools, training and community you'll need to feel comfortable building just about anything. We help you to evolve your technical and mechanical skills, develop your creativity and find new ways to improvise and be innovative.

The Fab Lab is a production workshop and small-scale innovation hub equipped with digital fabrication machines and technologies for the production of objects, tools and electronics.

Our Available Tools:

  • A computer-controlled lasercutter, for press-fit assembly of 3D structures from 2D parts
  • A larger (4'x8') numerically-controlled milling machine, for making furniture- (and house-) sized parts
  • A signcutter, to produce printing masks, flexible circuits, and antennas
  • A precision (micron resolution) milling machine to make three-dimensional molds and surface-mount circuit boards
  • Programming tools for low-cost high-speed embedded processors
  • Electronics work bench and many more...
