If you wish to use one of the machines in the lab, you need to attend a workshop

You can find an overview of available workshops on our calendar: http://www.fablab-brussels.be/fablab-english/agenda/


How about the tutorials you used to use?

We still like these, and intend to reintroduce them on our new location. However, they need to be rewritten to fit the new setups. For now we like the workshops as it allows us to train users in a bit more controlled way. We also do not have tutorials for the new machines & tools. Digital versions of the tutorials can still be found here,.


Can I make a reservation to use a machine?

Sorry, no. Machines are available on a first-come-first-served basis. If the machine is occupied, you’ll have to wait your turn. We have coffee. If you want to know if a machine is available you can phone us on Wednesday.


I need this thing made, can you make it/3D-print it / cut it / design it for me?

We gladly teach you how to use the machines, but we do not make anything for anyone.


What does it cost?
