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.

pay attention: RESERVATION IS STILL POSSIBLE FOR PERSONNEL: book your reservation here.

Always bring your own student or personnel card of the Association KU Leuven, Imec or Flanders Make and address yourself to us before using the machines. We allow maximum 25 persons in our main FabLab room.
Are you personnel, you can still chose to 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 invitations 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.

If you want to come to FabLab Leuven, then reservation is always obliged !

Before you can come by, you need to reserve our machines through our reservation tool. See also: How to register my account ? Pay attention – if you make a reservation, you reserve for 1 person per machine and only for using the machine (so, not for meetings in FabLab with colleagues, not for designing purposes – this all you need to do on beforehand and not in the FabLab). For 3D prints you send the files to fablableuven@kuleuven.be and we’ll inform you when they are ready. You’ll get a confirmation from us when you can come to pick up your print. You then always wear a face mask (face mask is obliged on all KU Leuven campuses)

How to pay:

– Budget number / order number for materials

– Payconiq/bankcontact app

NO assembling of designs in the FabLab. NO coming in without having received a time slot. Hand hygiene and mouth mask are obliged when entering. Open hours are from 9 – 17:30.  

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. Therefore, from 2 January onwards you will need a personnel of students card of KU Leuven or of “Associatie KU Leuven” in order to use FabLab Leuven’s facilities.

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 !!
