FAB LAB

The Fab Lab makes manufacturing accessible to everyone, with as many as 400 facilities currently open to aspiring and practicing manufacturers worldwide. We brought Fab Lab to Manchester in 2010, offering valuable tools, space and support to hone practical skills.

Fab Lab is fitted with some of the most advanced technology a budding manufacturer could hope for, from 3D printing machines to laser cutting to CNC routing systems. Public courses and open days are held regularly on site, giving attendees the chance to expand their knowledge whilst developing their talent.

The popularity of these facilities is testament to their quality and value; more than a quarter of a million people will be participating in Fab Labs in some form by 2020. There are also a range of exciting projects to explore, including Digital Ocean, Impact Hub and Gleanin.
