Open day Fablab Amsterdam: Saturday

At Fab Lab Amsterdam, anyone can realize his or her ideas with the aid of digital equipment. Fab Lab Amsterdam (located in the Waag) is the first Fab Lab that opened in the Netherlands. On Saturdays, our Fab Lab is open to the public (except in holiday periods). A place to experiment with digital fabrication!

>>>During our annual summer closure from 15 July until 31 August there will be no open days.<<<

The machines in the Fab Lab can be used on the open day between 10.00 and 17.00 hrs. We ask an hourly fee to use the machines. Visitors of the open day that document their work at Openthings are eligible to receive a refund of 50%. Bookings can be made at the website:

The Fab Lab has the following digital equipment available:

  • Large milling machine (ShopBot cnc): 20 euro per hour, 4 hrs minimum booking
  • Laser cutter (BRM): 50 euro per hour, 1 hr minimum booking (experts), 2 hrs (beginners)
  • Vinyl cutter: 20 euro per hour, 1 hr minimum booking
  • 3D printers (Ultimaker/Printerbot): 10 euro per hour, 2 hrs minimum booking
  • Small milling machine (Modela): 20 euro per hour, 2 hrs minimum booking

​Prices include support to work with the machines, coffee and free wifi. There is also a small electronics workplace available and there is enough space to work on your designs. Please come prepared: have your ideas and designs worked out before you visit the Fablab! The open hardware approach of the Fab Lab is in line with the open source and open content communities. You must provide your own materials, but some may also be bought at the Fab Lab.
