•a bit about fab labs•
Fab Labs are digital fabrication laboratories that provide the tools for rapid prototyping and small scale manufacturing in a community-accessible space. Originally growing out of the Center for Bits and Atoms at MIT, Fab Labs are a global network of labs with similar tools and goals. Fat Cat Fab Lab is the first in Manhattan. In a Fab Lab, community members can learn new skills, hold a maker or crafter meetup with other members, design and build products, and unlock inventions and ideas. The tools that enable this process are low-cost and open source software and hardware, CNC machines such as laser cutters, 3 axis milling machines and 3D printers. The ultimate goal is to democratize innovation, allowing for low barrier access to these tools by the community, and assistance in actualizing ideas in physical form.
