What is a Fab Lab?

The founding principle of a Fab Lab is to offer a communal space for members to collaborate and learn “how to make almost anything”. A typical lab is equipped with a 3D printer and other means of digital fabrication, including CAD software and 3D scanners.

Some examples of Fab Lab projects previously reported by 3D Printing Industry include Jalalabad Fab Lab in Afghanistan that gave internet to the city, and the Makerspace version of the workshops cropping up in universities.” – Beau Jackson3dprintingindustry.com
