What do you fab?
FAB refers to the fabrication revolution that is taking the world by storm. The term FAB incorporates the meanings of both FABulous and FABrication, which is free from the constraints of mass production and market theory. FabCafe shares the FAB spirit in a fun and user-friendly manner, while providing an open platform to support individuals in their creative efforts to make new things.
FabCafe is a space where people can come together, and connect with each other. By providing a variety of digital fabrication tools, including laser cutters and 3D printers, visitors are able to bring their digital data to life. FabCafe is where people can enjoy the thrill of making new things together and discovering their answer to the telltale FabCafe question that we always ask, “What do you Fab?”
As of 2018, FabCafe has expanded to 10 locations in 7 countries around the world. At each FabCafe, we are fostering a local creative community and connecting that community to the global network.
