Fabrication Lab

The Fabrication Lab is IMA’s digital manufacturing working space where students can realize their ideas. Utilizing cutting-edge technologies such as 3D printing and laser cutting, students are able to interface their ideas between the digital and physical world.

The Fab Lab is Equipped with a large set of tools that complies with open innovation concept developed by MIT in the United States. Available for use are seven 3D printers, a laser cutter/engraver that works with many types of material, a professional-grade 3D scanner for detailed digital modeling, a wood CNC router for constructing furniture and large structures, a CNC milling machine for precision parts, a PCB router for rapid circuit prototyping, electronic workbenches,  five sewing machines, an embroidery machines, a vinyl cutters and a large array of hand tools.

Location & Opening Hours 

Room 823-C
Monday to Friday: 9:30am - 12:30pm and 1:30pm - 5pm

How the Fabrication Lab works

  • Come for a visit to explore our machines and capabilities.
  • Attend the different workshops organized during the semester. You can find the information in the IMA newsletter or on 8th-floor posters.
  • Design your own work according to the tutorials for each machine.
  • Make a fabrication appointment with one of the fellows or Lab manager.
  • Ask fellows or staff if you have any problem. They can help you with machines and design problems.
  • Anyone who wishes to use the Fabrication Lab should demonstrate their awareness of safety procedures.
