What is a Fablab?
A Fab Lab, or digital fabrication laboratory, is a place to play, to create, to mentor and to invent: a place for learning and innovation.
Fab Labs provide access to the environment, the skills, the materials and the advanced technology to allow anyone anywhere to make (almost) anything.

How to start a Fablab?
Join the Fablab Network, an international movement in personal fabrication. The cheapest and fastest method to get a Fablab is to buy and assemble it yourself. This approach does require some expertise on hand to help you set up, install, debug and train. Alternatively, the Fab Foundation offers turnkey solutions for establishing new Fablabs around the globe.
