The Champaign Urbana Community Fab Lab has truly become a staple of the DIY/Maker community in Champaign Urbana. They were always a favorite at the UC Mini Maker Faire and will be returning to the Heartland Maker Fest to show off all they have to offer. Be sure to stop, say hi, and get hands on with some of the fun equipment they will be bringing. Perhaps make yourself a custom sticker before you move on.
As they would say:
“The Champaign-Urbana Community Fab Lab is a small-scale workshop for computer-based innovation, design and fabrication. The Fab Lab allows you to dream up, design and make almost anything you can imagine using open source software and DIY equipment.”
