FabLab: learn, make, innovate!

Saxion FabLab Enschede is a high-tech public workplace where everyone has the opportunity to realize his or her idea by THEMSELVES via modern digital means of production. From companies to students, product developers, young entrepreneurs, artists and individuals: all concepts can be made tangible!

In our public digital workplace, everyone is challenged to make things themselves through various computer-controlled prototyping machines such as 3D printers, laser cutters, 3D scanners, textile machines, etc. Openly sharing designs and ideas is encouraged. The focus is mainly on "doing it yourself". We can help and support you by open office hours, workshops or specific courses for the realization of your project.

Saxion FabLab Enschede is the first FabLab in Overijssel. Every FabLab has its own identity. Saxion FabLab Enschede focuses on Smart, High Tech and Textiles and is in line with Saxion's education topic of Living Technology - the successful application of innovative technology in education and research. The eastern Netherlands is the place where Living Technology forms an integral part of the infrastructure. Saxion plays a crucial role in this by translating scientific knowledge and insights into applications for society.
