Who are we
Saxion FabLab practices open innovation. In our public digital workshop, everyone is encouraged to create things themselves using various computer-controlled prototyping machines. Sharing designs and ideas openly is encouraged. The emphasis is primarily on “doing it yourself.” We will assist and support you through drop-in sessions, workshops, or specific courses to bring your project to life.
FabLab Enschede also facilitates in education, provides support for research groups, and offers guidance to makers. Take a look at our latest projects.
We achieve the accessibility of manufacturing facilities for students, research groups and enthusiasts through:
- Implementation and rapid prototyping in our public digital workshop.
- Collaboration in (subsidy) projects.
- Knowledge sharing in courses and workshops.
- Expansion through collaboration with other Saxion research groups and/or programs.
"FabLab Enschede is more than a public workshop; it serves as a facilitator in education, a supporter in research, and a guide for creators."
