An incubator for ideas and a place to engage people’s imaginations, the UVM FabLab makes rapid-prototyping tools available to UVM students and faculty. The lab provides the opportunity for interaction in developing and testing innovative products and designs. Innovate, Iterate, Make!

The UVM FabLab is funded by the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences with support from the Office of the Vice President for Research

CEMS Students work on final projects

Working with Lab

The UVM FabLab is a resource for the College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences (CEMS) community and other UVM programs and departments by special request. Projects must be academic in nature and affiliated with a professor. Have a part to print in the FabLab? Does your project need a part cut on the laser cutter? Stop by during our staffed hours and fill out a ticket. You’ll have to fill in your contact information and some details about the part you are printing, for example:

Which machine is needed for your project?

  • Is this for a class or SEED project?
  • When would you like it completed?
  • How much material will be required?
  • Are there any special instructions for making this part?

You can bring us your part file on a flash drive or email it to us at fablab@uvm.edu.
