Fab Lab Limerick started in 2012 when we began to build our own 3D printers, CNC Routers and laser cutters as part of the elective programme at the School of Architecture, University of Limerick.
We are a community of people passionate about digital fabrication technologies and their potential in creative projects. You are welcome to join us!
Former Fab Lab Limerick collaborators: Matteo Oppo, Stephen Bourke, Sean Collins, Aoife Marnane, Jim Murphy, Colin Dorgan, M. Mainardi, Gabriela Sartori, Rafael Melo, Jack Byrne, Luke Benson, Dave Hunt, Battista S., Niccolo Nulchis, Hottmar Loch, Alejandro Sanchez, Luis Graff, Ahsan Iqbal, Andrêssa De Andrade Machado, Luiz Felipe Ferreira, Tamires Lourdes, Diego Augusto Tavares.
We are determined to bridge the gap between digital fabrication technologies and local makers from all disciplines. We have learned by making and we want to encourage you to do the same.
We can help you to start using all these technologies in your own projects wether they are commercial or not. Drop us a line and let us know about your project or pass by the Fab Lab in any of our Open Days.
