​​ Provide training for tools and software

​​Open to all, from any industry (company or individual), via subscription
​​Also open to all campers, start-ups and residents at thecamp


Workspaces and tools

120m2 dedicated to design and prototyping


Design space

​• Variable-layout space: suited for group work, whether as part of a training program or a co-creation session
​​• Several computers with 3D modelling software available

Production zone

​Cutting-edge technologies for rapid prototyping, ideal for adjusting and confirming concepts, designs, constructions:

• 5 3D printers (including 2 with 25-micron precision)
​​• one thermoformer
​​• one laser cutting machine
​​• tools for welding and cabling electric circuits
​​• power tools (woodworking)

Electrical workbenches

​​• Prototyping zone for electric circuits and embedded systems
​​• Possibility to create your own electric circuits, and test and debug them

Clément Bouttier, engineer
“I had the opportunity to use the fablab through the Hive residency. I learned to use the 3D printers as well as the laser cutting machine. I got the guidance I needed to use the software. I’ve kept the reflex of going to see the fablab team when I’m looking for a technical solution. I know that I’ll find at least the beginning of an answer, as well as the technical tools to work on it.”

Léa Wlodarczyk, space designer
“We developed prototypes of games and tools for children as part of our project. The fablab was necessary to create them, and gave us access to tools and machines as well as valuable technical advice.”

Emilie, game designer
“I've been making computer games for years now. When I arrived at thecamp, I entered a fablab for the first time and discovered a whole range of possibilities for prototyping games and interactive objects. I learned that I really enjoy making tangible objects, which gives me new professional opportunities. For example, I managed to design and create an interactive map from scratch in one month.”
