FabLab RUC is an open fablab, rapid prototyping laboratory and digital production workshops, run by HUMTEKs technology gurus in building 9 & 37. We are open for all, you do not have to be a student or researcher at RUC. We handle materials ranging from wood, plastics, metal, cloth, electronics, programming and computer controlled manufacturing. We pride ourselves on being able to build a prototype of any technological system.
We are open weekdays 10-16, except tuesdays when we are open 12-21. Regular, trusted users can have a keycard for 24/7 access to the electronics & 3D printing lab. Lasers, CNC machines etc. can however only be used within opening hours.
