The Fablab is the makerspace at CUT, where you can transform your idea into a prototype.

What tools are there?

The Fablab has multiple 3D Printers, Lasercutter, Vinyl cutting and general power tools available, additionally there are also high-powered desktop PC's to allow for computer aided design (CAD).

How does it work?

You have to book your appointment at least 4 days in advance to ensure access to the required machines (walk-ins are allowed if there are no bookings).

At the Fablab you work on the machines yourself, there are technical assistants to guide you and show you if you need help.

What can you do?
