Snepo FabLab is 200 square metres of dedicated space with a range of machines, tools and materials available. An interdisciplinary space designed to support commercial clients, entrepreneurs and students working with emerging technologies. We also have regular community open days to help facilitate the development of open source solutions with a particular focus on the local community.
What is a FabLab?
Fab labs provide widespread access to modern means for invention. They began as an outreach project from MIT's Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA). CBA assembled millions of dollars in machines for research in digital fabrication, ultimately aiming at developing programmable molecular assemblers that will be able to make almost anything. Fab labs fall between these extremes, comprising roughly fifty thousand dollars in equipment and materials that can be used today to do what will be possible with tomorrow's personal fabricators.
