Structure type ASBL - Association Sans But Lucratif

Explored in February 2021


Openfab is a project of Syntonie asbl. The association explores the relationship between humans and their environment. Openfab is THE Brussels fablab that specifically explores the link between humans and technology. Openfab is a community whose aim is to set up mechanisms to help us free ourselves from these preliminary obstacles, to find meaning, motivation and excitement in our ideas for creation, to recreate the link locally. How do we do this? By encouraging exchanges through the mixing of know-how, by sharing a place and machines, and by example and hands-on experience.

Welcome. If you’re here, it’s because you feel a bit lousy at DIY, but you want to improve. Congratulations!

Remember, I talk a lot about bricolage, but we agree that it’s not big woodworking. Openfab is a fablab, where we focus on skills associated with digital machines, 3D printing, electronics, laser cutting and engraving.

So if that’s what you’re looking for, registration is exclusively at the workshop. -^^- Because we don’t want you to sign up to please us, it must make YOU feel good. And being a member means coming to the lab, meeting each others. It’s not about filling out a form, it’s about welcoming you.
