Using the FabLab
- Decide what you want: for instance, to turn into reality anything from your university project or based on your own idea; to receive some assistance with equipment / software provided in the FabLab; to learn how to use a machine and so on.
- Contact one of our staff member, either by e-mail or personally in the FabLab building
- Agree on a convenient time for both parties, and be precise with your requirements/expectations
- Provide the raw material for your case - we can help when related to one of the machines, for instance which certified material can be used in each of them
- Be on time and be prepared for the frustration of failures and joy of small accomplishments - remember that making and prototyping is a VERY iterative process, with lots of fails, trials and errors. Do not come in last minute expecting a magic 3D printing, it will not happen.
A list of the machines found at FabLab ++ located at the NTNU in Ålesund is available.
Fab Lab Foundation
FabLab NTNU is connected to a larger network of fablabs, managed by the FabFoundation. The Fab Foundation is a organization that emerged from MIT’s Center for Bits & Atoms Fab Lab Program. This foundation provides access to the tools, the knowledge and the financial means to educate, innovate and invent using technology and digital fabrication to allow anyone to make (almost) anything, and thereby creating opportunities to improve lives and livelihoods around the world. Community organizations, educational institutions and non-profit concerns are our primary beneficiaries.
