Fab Lab Adelaide | Think It. Make It. Share It.
Fab Lab Adelaide is a not-for-profit community workshop in which new products and creative works can be designed and made using digital fabrication equipment including several 3D printers and a laser cutter. The Lab supports South Australian inventors, designers, artists, and other creative and entrepreneurial individuals and businesses through the provision of free and low cost access to equipment and expertise.

Fab Lab Adelaide is back. You’ll find us at our new home, the St Paul’s Creative Centre located on the corner of Pulteney and Flinders street in the CBD.


Fab Lab Adelaide has been relaunched by a small, dedicated bunch of volunteers, eager to ensure the facility’s survival and eventual growth into a bigger, better, sustainable venture. It’s taking us some time to get settled in, update our procedures and systems, and welcome back our existing users. We’re also working on a new and improved website that will in time feature more information about us, our equipment, inductions and workshops and how you can get involved.


In the meantime:


Existing Users:


Open access sessions are now on Thursdays, 3pm – 8pm and Saturdays 11am – 3pm and will operate in the familiar first-come, first-served, shared basis for the time-being.


Please note that from February 1st there will be a new fee structure:


• $5 each time you use the Lab
• Gold coin contribution per 3D print
• Cost of laser cutting materials (Acrylic, MDF etc) sold on site to increase (see new price list in Lab)
• $5 charge per visit to use your own material on the laser cutter (maximum 5 pieces & subject to approval by duty Lab technician)


These fees help us pay our rent, maintain the machines and hopefully in time allow us to buy new tools and equipment.


New users:


To find our more about Fab Lab Adelaide, please visit us during the open access sessions at the above times and chat with the team and other users.


To be come a user of Fab Lab Adelaide we require you to undertake an induction with one of the volunteer team members:


• Introduction to 3D Printing
• Introduction to Laser Cutting


Covering the correct setup, operation and use of our equipment, along with general OH&S requirements, each one hour workshop costs $15 ($10 concession). Completion of at least one of these is mandatory if you wish to become a regular user of the Fab Lab.
