An idea dreamt up at Fab Lab London. Fab Bike brings the spirit making and the tools of digital fabrication to any location, allowing individuals of all ages to learn about digital fabrication, design, 3D printing, laser cutting, electronics, sustainability and making. We love to run workshops on
• Playing with electronics and coding with Arduino
• 3D modeling, printing and scanning
• Recycling and using sustainable materials for design
• Messing with conductive inks, LEDs and sound
• Using lasers on wood, textiles and cardboard
• Design challenges and competitions
We host pop-up events in lots of places in fact any space where we can help people get involved with making, having fun and learning about digital fabrication. You can book the the bike to host a pop workshop in any of these locations…
• Schools, Academies and Universities
• Public spaces, parks, coffee shops
• Libraries, museums and festivals
• Business and team building events
3D PRINTING. LASERS. ELECTRONICS. TEXTILES. MATERIALS.
All the fun stuff
WHAT'S ON THE BIKE?
We a very cool Ultimaker ‘Go’ 3D Printer on the bike. It’s a very cool piece of kit ideal great for quick prototypes.
Roland iModela – a great portable milling machine for cutting and etching soft materials like balsa wood, acrylics, wax and chocolate!
We’ve an Emblaser – the Darkly Labs A4 Laser cutter. Perfect for cutting and etching textiles, balsa wood, soft plastics and paper.
We have Arduino Nano, Uno and Yun. Great micro-controllers for designers, inventors and all sorts of interesting projects
Textiles and Wearables. With a small scale sewing machine we can fit light, motors, sensors and technology into clothing.
A Raspberry Pi computer you can build yourself. Ideal for kids to learn the basics of computing and coding in an exciting way.
Tech Will Save Us
Lots of fun tech kits for makers including DIY Gamer, DIY Sound Machine, Thirsty Plant Kit, Electro Dough and Start Arduino Kit.
Draw circuits with Bare Conductive Ink, attach sensors, switches, lights and motors all triggered through touch.
Arduino compatible WiFi magic in a box. These micro controllers are great for Internet of Things projects, and very simple to set up.
Our hand held Fuel 3D Scanner can capture amazing high-resolution 3D models to make incredible designs for 3D Printing.
Fab Labs are great, but why limit yourself to just one location? Co-Founder of Fab Lab London Ande Gregson talks about the concept behind Fab Bike; a Fab Lab that can go anywhere with a milling machine, 3D scanner, wearable tech, mini electronics lab and an Ultimaker 2Go. Find out more about Fab Bike and […]
Our friends at Voltaic Systems have sent across a 9V solar panel and powerpack to support the Fab Bike project. The power unit will be used to drive our in-bike GPS tracker that we’re developing using a mixture of an Arduino Yun and a Nav Spark indiegogo kit. We’ll be mapping and keeping a record […]
We’re super excited to have received an Ultimaker 2 Go from the amazeballs team in Amsterdam. The little bundle of 3D Printing joy arrived in the Fab Lab in the usual Ultimaker brown box – but we were doubly surprised to find a grey padded carry case inside with the printer all ready to go. […]
A box arrived in the lab this morning from our friends at Bare Conductive with 20 tubes of electric paint. We’re very excited and looking forward to using them in projects and workshops with Fab Bike. Electric Paint is an electrically conductive paint that makes it possible to draw a circuit, cold solder a component […]
