  • OpenLabs are thematically specialized technology labs in which private individuals, companies and start-ups can get to know and use open-source and digital manufacturing machines, such as 3D printers, CNC milling machines or laser cutters.

By using open source hardware machine tools, OpenLabs help to promote local innovation projects, support urban production and reduce dependence on global supply chains. Open source hardware also strengthens technological competence, with open documentation promoting local knowledge and global collaboration.
