Welcome to Fab Lab Adelaide
Fab Lab Adelaide is a volunteer run, digital fabrication workshop and home to a diverse community of people with a passion for making things, and who want to share that passion with others. First established in 2012 by the Australian Network for Art & Technology, it is now managed by South Australian Makers Inc.
Equipped with a selection of desktop 3D printers, a Trotec laser cutter and additional complimentary digital tools and software, the Lab is built on the idea of connected creativity or the bringing together of makers to learn, explore, educate, communicate and fabricate.
To help us pay our rent, maintain the machines and occasionally buy new tools and equipment we charge a user fee $5 each time you use the Lab. Basic materials are available to purchase in the Lab.
To be come a user of Fab Lab Adelaide we usually require you to undertake an induction with one of the volunteer team members. We currently however have a freeze on our induction processes while we go through some updates and changes, coupled with a planned move to a bigger, better premises in the coming months.
Therefore in the meantime, feel free to call in to the Fab Lab during our open access sessions and identify yourself to one of the volunteer team who will be happy to talk you through the equipment we have and help get you started.
Our open access sessions are on Thursdays, 3pm – 8pm and Saturdays 11am – 3pm and operate on a first-come, first-served, shared basis.
