The Fab Lab

Our digital fabrication workshop is a space for prototyping and experimenting (for the non-makers, this is where your computer syncs up with one of our machines to bring your designs to life). The Fab Lab is home to a Batch Works 3D printer farm which is a stack of 3D printers enabling our members to auto-print small batch runs of product parts. Over the lockdown period, we helped Batch Works use this tech to make over 10,000 visors for use by the NHS.

  • A space for prototyping and experimenting
  • Home to a BatchWorks 3D printer farm
  • Connects us to a global network of similar spaces

Heavy duty space

This space is for working on bigger projects or to produce high-precision engineering or manufacturing prototypes in metal, plastic or wood. As well as digital machines for cutting and milling, you’ll also find more traditional workshop equipment in here such as bandsaws, mill drills and sanders.

The space is fitted with industrial extraction, keeping the air quality clean (air quality is a key component of our commitment to WELL Building Standards which you can read more about here).

  • For bigger projects and producing high-precision engineering

The Bio Lab

The wet lab or bio area is a space for wet designs to come to life. Designers can work with plaster, casting in silicone or brewing biomaterials.  Lucy Hughes, founder of MarinaTex, and winner of our Disruptors competition, will be using this space to develop her plastic alternative, made from waste from the fishing industry.
