We had a team visit to Sunderland’s new, very soon to open FabLab today, which has been built in partnership with the University. A FabLab is a low-cost workshop which is set up with a range of equipment designed to let almost anyone build almost anything. All FabLab’s have roughly the same equipment and facilities so that people and projects can easily move between locations, with one key piece being one or more 3D printers. Other kit available includes a bench of soldering guns and electronics for making circuits, a laser cutting and engraving machine, and a huge ShopBot CNC machine, which they had to knock a wall down to fit in.
Once the Lab properly opens to the public you will be able to get a 3D scan and print of your head for only £30. What a great and unique Christmas present for the loved one in your life!
