Manufacturing Dreams

MAKLAB is Scotland’s first & largest open access digital fabrication workshop network.

A Place to Make Your Ideas Real

MAKLAB is Scotland’s first & largest open access digital fabrication workshop network. It is open to the public to access the new digital manufacturing technologies such as 3D printers, laser cutters, cnc routers & mills. Induction and training is offered on how to use these technologies so that individuals can turn their ideas and concepts into reality, supporting their own households with new & repaired goods, supporting creative startup businesses and giving youngsters their first taste of what manufacturing might look like in 21st century Scotland.

Maklab is currently based in Glasgow but are delivering pilots in Aberdeen, Dundee & Wick in partnership with local arts, engineering & community groups.
