Getting started

work flow

Every tuesday FabLab Amersfoort is open from 10:00 to 22:00 hours. We expect visitors to do something in return for using the lab. The system for that is as follows: On entry every visitor pays €50 cash. To earn those back you have to do something that is worth the same as using the Fablab has been worth to you. That can be anything: You can share your design, you can fix the lights, you can give us a tool we need, or leave (part of) your payment behind. At the end of the month we will use that money to pay the rent, do maintenance and buy new machines.

During the open days on tuesday you cannot reserve a machine. If you want to be sure you have a machine all to yourself, you can rent the Fablab on one of the other days.

When you come in you will see a lot of people working, and a few labmanagers will be walking around. They can help you get started, tell you if your material can be used in the fablab, and what machines to use. They will also make sure everyone gets his turn on the machines. You can ask them for advise if a machine doesn't do what you want it to, but they will often point to the online manual. You will have to at least try and figure things out yourself or with your fellow visitors. If that doesn't work, the Labmanager will of course help you. The machines are very user friendly  and the manuals are clear. If they are not, you can edit them, this could be a nice way to earn your money back. You are also expected to help others.

The benefits of using custom-writing services are immense for foreign students. In addition, students with part-time jobs, older students who have families and those who are going through tough personal struggles simply need help to go through all challenges they face. The rapid growth of the custom-writing industry is a symptom of the great weaknesses within the educational system, which put students through a great deal of stress and emotional struggle.
