About FabCafe

Share on Facebook

“Fab”, the “fabrication revolution” movement has been spreading around the world. Fab has a double meaning: “FABrication”, not limited by the logic of mass production and markets, as well as “FABulous”. The FAB network now extends to over 50 locations in 20 countries around the world (as of April 2011)

FabCafe is a space that conveys the FAB spirit in a fun, delicious and easy to understand way. In the center of Shibuya, an area overflowing with youthful energy, we provide a space where people can enjoy making things in an exciting environment furnished with a variety of digital fabrication tools, including a laser cutter.

To learn about the variety of aspects of FabCafe, go to Fab Talks!
Also, you can see what’s happening in the FabCafe on Google+.

Students from the University of Adeliade, architecture school are coming to Tokyo. We were hoping to work with Julian Worral lat Waseda University. Unfortuatel he will be overseas at that time.
We were hoping to use his 3d Printers. So he suggested the FAB Cafe. How does it all work? Do you only have laser cutters or scintering as well? I will be arriving on this Tuesday September18 with the students probably hoping to 3D print in the week the 5th – 9th October.
Will this work.?How much does it cost?
I will come and visit soon!
We have nothing like this here in Adelaide! Very exciting.
