Where:
Fat Cat Fab Lab

New York, NY 10014

Ring the bell, we'll buzz you in.

For those who can't make it in person, we'll have a Zoom room going during the event. RSVP and tell us whether you'll be in person or virtual for the link.

IMPORTANT: COVID-19 safety measures below

Here's what we have planned:

- Please introduce yourself and talk a little about what you're interested in and/or working on currently.

- We'll give a tour of the space, giving everyone time to ask questions at each area.

- For those who need help with a project, we'll do our best to connect you with one of our hosts and create a separate meeting for you to work.

If you are interested in joining as a Fat Cat Fab Lab member, participation in one of our open house events is the first step towards becoming a member!

Please be safe and healthy!

Laser Open Hours

This meetup is open to the public and dedicated to the Laser.

If you've taken our laser basis usage and safety class, you can use this time to run your jobs with an instructor present and brush up on your skills! This is a requirement before going solo! Please note that this is a shared time so we ask that you do not come with a job that will take longer than 15-20 minutes. Please note: to use the laser non-members pay $20 and $1 per minute for job-time, which is defined by when the laser is actually cutting or engraving. FCFL Members get 3 hours of job-time included every month and pay $0.50 per minute after that.

If you haven't had the class already, come enjoy a laser demo!
