We have been moving with all our stuff since December 2023. Our new location is the Stadtwirtschaft. Unfortunately, we are therefore unable to offer an open workshop for the time being. Visit our homepage regularly to find out the latest news from us.


Our principles are based on the original charter of global FabLabs from October 20, 2012 ("The Fab Charter") and the self-image of open workshops.

[1] Goal

FabLabs are a global network of local workshops - opened to encourage people to collaborate, create projects and innovate by providing access to the tools of digital and traditional production.

[2] Access

(Almost) any object can be developed in the FabLab as long as there are no legal reasons against it, you are able to do so independently and the shared use of the FabLab is not impaired.

[3] Instructions

FabLabs are formed through their own projects and learn from and with others. It is therefore expected that all users contribute their share to documentation and guidance.

[4] Safety

All work should only be carried out with the necessary specialist knowledge and only in such a way that neither people nor technology can be harmed.

[5] Cleanness

The FabLab and its facilities should be left as clean as they were found. (If necessary and reasonable, even better).

[6] Work execution

Everyone should make their contribution and support the FabLab in the operation, repair and documentation of technology, consumables and processes.

[7] Nondisclosure

Projects and developments within the FabLab are intended for individual personal use and to serve society, even if the intellectual property and decisions on publication, confidentiality and utilization lie solely with the author. Copyright law naturally applies.

[8] Business

The FabLab is primarily intended for private, non-commercial tinkering. It can and may serve as an incubator for commercial activities as long as this does not conflict with free access to FabLab and technology. In addition, commercial projects outside the FabLab should be developed further and also contribute appropriately to the continued existence of the FabLab and the personal success of those who have contributed to the success of the project in the form of technology, premises, networks and personal commitment. Commercial activities based on FabLab resources must be disclosed to the FabLab and require approval, especially in view of the fact that the organizing team builds and maintains the FabLab on a voluntary and non-profit basis.

[9] Loyalty to the constitution

The FabLab supports and promotes the free democratic basic order and respects the Basic Law of the Federal Republic of Germany and the Constitution of the Free State of Saxony.

[10] Legal information

Independent, autonomous work in and at the FabLab does not under any circumstances lead to employment contracts or other employment relationships being established with the FabLab, even if benefits or discounts are granted.
