Our Fab Lab includes high-tech 2D and 3D digital manufacturing equipment that can be found in the best labs across the world.
Lisa Sinterit Pro — SLS Printer
A new addition to the Fab Lab, a 3D printer capable of printing in nylon and TPU, without support material. This printer can create high quality component ready parts.
Formlabs Form 2 & Form 3 SLA 3D Printers
The Formlabs Form 2 3D Printer delivers consistently reliable performance and can produce extremely detailed, complex 3D objects.
FDM 3D Printers: Ultimaker fleet
Our new Ultimaker S5 Duel Extruder, an Ultimker 3, two Ultimaker 2 Extended + and Utlimaker Go takes files from CAD programmes and builds the object in layers of non virgin PLA biodegradable plastic.
Leica BLK360 Environment Laser Scanner

Wazer waterjet Cutter
The Wazer — the worlds first small scale desktop waterjet cutter has arrived at Fab Lab Plymouth!
Wabeco CNC Mill
Our new Wabeco Mill can machine components in a wide range of metals and other high density materials to very high tolerances.
CNC Subtractive Rapid Prototypers
The CNC machine is a subtractive process and works by cutting an form from a solid block of material.
The CNC router can cut, engrave and machine larger forms.
Our laser cutters can cut through or engrave many materials such as paper, card, perspex, acrylic, cotton, felt and plywood.
Our vinyl cutter allows you to create made-to-measure signs, stickers and decals.
A range of 2D and 3D design software is available to access by Fab Lab users, guided with the expertise of the staff.
