Fab Lab Adelaide is a community inventors’ workshop offering digital fabrication on a personal scale, in which new products and creative works can be made. The lab will be equipped with an array of flexible computer-controlled tools including 3D printers, a laser cutter and a milling machine. The Lab will offer classes, themed workshops, drop-in sessions, one-to-one tuition, a regional outreach program and family-friendly ‘maker sessions’.
The Fab Lab concept was originated by Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), and there are now over 100 around the world. Fab Lab Adelaide is the first Australian-based participant in the international MIT Fab Lab network. Fab Lab Adelaide is funded by the South Australian Government (DFEEST), managed by ANAT and hosted by Adelaide College of the Arts (AC Arts).
Whether a home project, educational task, artistic creation or commercial product, the Fab Lab mission is to empower people to make their ideas a reality!
