Users wishing to operate equipment on their own can only do so by completing a training session and after paying their user fees. When using equipment independently, an initial check of your files and basic mentor support are included in the price. If you’d like more guidance, such as having our mentors assist you throughout your session on the equipment, correct your files or print them. You can find a list of applicable fees from our pricelist. User fees do not include the price of materials.

Open days – mentor-assisted practice
Duration:
2 hours

The first two-hour mentor-assisted session is free of charge within the first two months of your initial training, and can be applied when first booking your open day session. For all further sessions, user fees apply as per our pricelist. If you haven’t used the equipment in question for over three months, another training session is required (charged extra), unless the mentor gives special permission for such.

SERVICES FOR ALL USERS

SOFTWARE WORKSHOP: RHINOCEROS 3D
Duration of each level: 1: 4 x 3 hours, 2: 3 x 3 hours, 3: 3 x 3 hours

Knowledge of 3D modelling is required for the independent use of 3D printers and CNC milling machines. The workshop teaches the basics of Rhinoceros 3D, with three separate levels aimed at beginners, intermediate users and advanced users. You can apply to all three levels or apply for individual levels, depending on your knowledge of 3D modelling. In 2018, workshops are free of charge; as of January 2019 the pricelist applies.
    
SATURDAY WORKSHOPS
Duration:
3 hours

Saturday workshops for children and teens are free workshops on using technology creatively. Through the working process, children get to know the basics of the technologies in question, work creatively, and take the end result home with them once the workshop is over. Aimed primarily at children aged 9–12, the workshops take place every third Saturday of the month at RogLab’s maker lab; you’re invited to take part in our partners’ Saturday workshops as well.

WORKSHOPS FOR ADULTS
Duration:
3–4 hours

Creativity doesn’t wane with years, it just lies dormant: that’s why we occasionally organise workshops for adults that want to give their creative streak a bit of a nudge. For professional makers, creatives and designers, we organise educational workshops together with partner institutions on new maker technologies, from 3D printing to wearable electronics and composite materials. Follow our upcoming events for more info!
    
FABBOX - TRAVELLING WORKSHOPS FOR CHILDREN AND ADULTS
