Give your space a leg-up

We’ve been managing fab labs successfully for over a decade – and learned a great deal along the way. The knowledge and best practices we’ve built into Fabman will help you grow and thrive.

Fabman is the ideal supplement for our lab and our makers.

Connect your machines

Manage every machine with Fabman – from laser cutter to coffee maker. Use our bridges to connect your equipment to Fabman in less than five minutes:

  1. Hardware setup: Plug the machine’s power cord into the bridge and plug the bridge into an outlet. That’s it!
  2. Add the machine to your Fabman account. Define who’s allowed to use the machine and set their usage fees.
  3. Members use their keycard to switch on the machine. Fabman tracks all activities, creates charges, and makes sure that the machine doesn’t run unattended.
Fabman bridges offer many additional features like exhaust filter monitoring, busy/idle detection, and power monitoring.

Save precious time

Members, bookings, invoicing, payments, maintenance, …
Fabman assists you in all your daily tasks, giving you more time for your community and business. We care about simplicity and speed, letting you focus on what's important – instead of fighting with slow, cluttered, and overcomplicated tools.

Fabman makes our woodshop management heaps easier and gives us more time to spend with customers and on projects.

Manage from anywhere

Keep tabs on who’s in the lab and what’s coming up. See the status of your equipment at a glance – on any device. Our modern web app works great on your computer, tablet, and phone – no setup required.

Safety first

Keep track of who’s trained on a machine – and who isn’t. Fabman stops unqualified people from turning on machines. And integrated dead man’s switches prevent dangerous equipment from running unattended – for the safety of your users and your lab.

We have more than 1700 members and grant them 24/7 access to our machines. Fabman’s safety features help me sleep well at night.
