Welcome to Leuven

FabLab Leuven is “open source hardware” for students and staff of KU Leuven, let’s say: a library with user-friendly machines to make almost anything out of wood or plastic.

Using the FabLab is for free if you share your knowledge with others. So, you can use the machines for free, as long as you put your results on-line !! You do this by uploading your creation on Instructables - more info about this at FAQ.

For students and staff of “Association KU Leuven".

As a student you always bring your personal student card from “Association KU Leuven” with you.

Furthermore you show that you respect our FabLab and the other users by always cleaning up your material when you have finished.

You are only allowed to use one machine per project / person (i.e. if you are making invitiations or tokens for scouts, you can only use one laser cutter). This in respect for the people waiting to use the laser cutter as well.

From 02/01/2020 FabLab is no longer accessible for everyone


With regrets we have to announce that FabLab Leuven will no longer be accessible for everyone. Unfortunately FabLab Leuven can no longer bear the costs for non KU Leuven users and after 7 years of negotiations there’s still no solution....

Always send us an e-mail if you would like to use the CNC mill !! Also keep in mind that you send your mail enough time in advance !!
