Can you enter Fablab without registration?
Yes you can. Robisz.to team will gladly show you around, and this place will make you want to stay here longer. If you want to be sure there will be somebody to show you around, give us a call or send a message to let us know, we will reserve some time for you.
Is it possible to come without registration and use your machines, e.g. 3D printers or laser plotter?
It is, although using workrooms requires participants to have passed OSH and machine handling classes. In such cases, there are also subscriptions thanks to which you can use workrooms in FabLab powered by Orange. One-off services provided at the studio are subject to separate and individual evaluation.
I want to cut something out of plywood on your machine. Do i need to bring my own material, or can it be bought from you?
If you have your own materials, you can use the machines in the workshop, however, in such cases you have to have a subscription. The type of materials you use must be agreed in advance with the Robisz.to team, this is related to your safety in our studio. Sometimes we make larger orders for a specific material as part of our various activities. Answering the question in advance, you can "add" to our order, the price of materials is then determined individually.
