The FabLab Graz

Hier entsteht: Österreichs größter Makerspace.

FabLab Graz, the Makerspace at Graz University of Technology – we started to expand our existing FabLab to 800m2

FabLab Graz was launch as the first Austrian FabLab in 2014. Neil Gershenfeld from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) set up the first FabLab (Fabriation Laboratory) in 2002. Nowadays, over 1,000 FabLabs worldwide span an enormous knowledge sharing network.  The basic idea of this global network is to offer possibilities for every individual to invent and build hardware products themselves by having access to capabilities for designing, manufacturing, distributing and knowledge. At the current FabLab Graz you can find machines like a laser cutter, CNC milling machine or various 3D printers. Moreover, tools for traditional manufacturing activities such as metalworking, woodworking and electronics prototyping are provided.

FabLab Graz will be expanded in 2018 to 800m2.

The FabLab Graz is located at Inffeldgasse 11/I. Open to inventors, entrepreneurs and creatives, FabLab Graz is a place for learning, prototyping and idea exchange to foster product innovation.
