Provider: Champaign-Urbana Community Fab Lab

Type: Consulting And Support


The Champaign-Urbana Community Fab Lab is an open and collaborative workshop space for computer-driven innovation, design and fabrication. We enable makers of all kinds to imagine, design and create using open source software and DIWO (do it with others!) methodologies. We do this by working with a local and international network to actively cultivate public engagement through community-focused art-entrepreneurship, research and education.

Fab Lab is short for Fabrication Laboratory. It is an advanced workshop space for rapid prototyping and computer-based design. It is comprised of a network of smaller mini or mobile fab lab spaces. The on-campus space has a suite of fabrication machines, including laser engravers, CNC routers, 3D printers and 3D scanners, electronic cutters, digital textile machines, small board electronics, robotics, vacuum formers, graphic drawing tablets, advanced CAD software and more. Classes on these technologies are held for up to 50 participants.
