The Project

Build a mobile digital fabrication lab


People started to talk about this around. Serge (3D printing project) also proposed this concept. Tibi and Daniel thought about establishing a presence to different events over the summer in Montreal, including tam tam Mont-Royal. Tibi created a project in SENSORICA on June 02, 2014.

Advantages of the service

There are no mobile digital fabrication labs in Montreal, but the interest around digital fabrication is growing. 3D printing attracts a lot of public attention. Being mobile, we go where people are.
