Working With FABWorks

Offering experiential learning opportunities, FABWorks is a facility that reinvents the way people create and innovate. As part of UCl’s Institute for Design and Manufacturing Innovation (IDMI) in the Samueli School of Engineering, FABWorks offers space in the Calit2 Building where users can design and fabricate almost anything, providing access to a host of machines and technical staff ready to offer machine training and design help.

Among FABWorks’ prosumer grade (above consumer grade) equipment are 3-D printers and scanners, networked computer-controlled milling machines, laser cutters, electronics development and diagnostics equipment, industrial sewing machines and more. The FABWorks space offers expanded opportunities for those interested in hands-on, advanced-manufacturing experience and creates a hub where creativity can propel next-generation technologies.
