FabLab Residencies

Caution: we are full until January after our moving into the new building !

If you're an artist, designer, engineer or developer and want to develop a new creative project with our digital manufacturing machines, Fablab.iMAL can offer you a residency.

Our maximum 4 weeks residencies take place in our Fablab (and only there). They aim to support original proposals focusing on research and experimentation: prototypes, new materials, etc.

We're offering free access to our machines and trainings, as well as a reimbursement of production costs (eg materials, components, ...) up to 400 € (based on invoices).

Residents have to document their work on the Wikimal and exhibit the result in the dedicated space in the Fablab.

Residents bring their own computer and posses basic knowledge in vector based drawing and/or 3D; we only train residents to use the machines and related CAM softwares.

Are you interested? Register now via the form!
