Fab Lab is short for Fabrication Laboratory. We're set up to inspire and teach people about how to turn idea's into products, prototypes or art & design trough digital fabrication. We work with open source software and have various machines and processes available. Our capability's include lasercutting, vinylcutting, 3D printing, large format cnc milling, molding & casting, designing, creating and programming electronics.

Fab Lab Reykjavik was opened on January 24th, 2014 as a collaboration between the City of Reykjavik, Breiðholt College and Innovation Center Iceland.
