Fab Bus

The Maker Bus:
A Fab Lab-On-Wheels (“Fab Bus”)

What is the Fab Bus?

The Fab Bus is a London double-decker bus fitted out with 16 work stations/machines from computers, to 3D printers, to food printers, to vinyl laser cutters and many more.

What are the Fab Bus’s purposes?

To experience the machines or to train on them so you can learn about their uses.

To connect with schools, colleges, universities, businesses and everyone who wants to make almost anything – from signs to 3D printed gizmos to food printing, to repairing almost anything!

Some of the purposes of Fab Foundation UK are to re-skill workers, disabled people,  and former service personnel. Another goal is to encourage girls and young women into engineering and technology. All to train for job opportunities in 21st century businesses.
