Welcome to Leuven

FabLab Leuven is "open source hardware" for students and personnel of the Association KU Leuven, Imec and Flanders Make, i.e.: a library with user friendly machines to make almost anything with wood or plastic.

For students and personnel of the Association KU Leuven, Imec and Flanders Make.

attention: RESERVATION POSSIBILITY for personnel: make your reservation here.

Always take your personal student or personnel card of Association KU Leuven, Imec or Flanders Make with you and report to us before using the machines. We allow maximum 25 persons in our largest FabLab room.
Are you personnel, you can still make your reservation here.

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.


Personnel can still reserve through our tool.
