A Fab Lab (fabrication laboratory) is a small-scale workshop with an array of computer controlled tools that cover several different length scales and various materials, with the aim to make "almost anything". This includes technology-enabled products generally perceived as limited to mass production.

The Fab Lab network is a global network of Fab Labs with people working together from all over the world are using the labs to create and develop their ideas and solutions. There are around 40 labs in Europe, America, Asia, and Africa.
