From tiny shared space to sprawling fab lab – Fabman is the perfect operating system for your business.
Sign up new members, add packages & plans, and track completed training courses. Grant members access to some or all of your equipment. See their full history at a glance.
Craft membership packages tailored to your needs. All-inclusive, 24/7 access? Half-Price-Tuesday? Weekend specials? All-you-can-print subscriptions? Everything is possible.
Customize permissions, discounts, fees, and cancellation terms to match your business needs. Fabman keeps track of one-time and recurring fees, making invoicing straight-forward. Need to make an exception for someone particular? You can adjust prices and discounts for individual members.
Connect any machine to Fabman in minutes – from laser cutter to coffee maker. Collect usage statistics and status information. Effortlessly charge members for actual machine time instead of using guesstimations. Track required maintenance and tell users about downtimes.
With Fabman, you control who can use your equipment. Make training courses mandatory or reserve prime-time for premium customers. Keep your lab safe with flexible access controls.
Fabman bridges ensure that dangerous equipment isn’t left unattended. Fabman can prompt users to swipe their card at regular intervals while the machine is busy – and automatically shut it off if they don’t respond. Prevent hazardous situations before they arise.
Let members book machines, meeting rooms or desks online. Fabman takes care of billing and guarantees that a machine is actually available when someone’s reservation is coming up. No more "But I just need 10 more minutes" disputes in your community.
Charge members for their plans, bookings, and equipment usage – automatically and by the minute, if you like. Create invoices for one-time and recurring fees. Start accepting credit cards and collect payments with a single click. Coming soon: Cashless point of sale. Let members pay for material or refreshments with their member card.
Automatically charge members for resource usage – precise and intelligible. Know what’s happening in your lab. And in case of damages, the log helps you to discover who’s accountable. "Who used the CNC mill yesterday evening?"
Add all your spaces to a single account and let members roam between them if you wish.
Fabman’s full functionality & data is available via our flexible JSON API.
