Prototyping with StartGlocal

Equipped with our own professional 3D printer, CNC milling machine and plotter, StartGlocal supports your prototyping activities during our coachings, workshops, events and business competitions.

It all starts with your product idea. Our prototyping team guides you through the innovation process until you will have succesfully defined your minimum viable product.

A fabulous environment for prototyping

Although it is not well known (yet), our university runs three FabLabs at the two campus locations and offers various ways to create prototypes or minimum viable products. FabLabs are a global network of local labs, enabling invention by providing access to tools for digital fabrication. Everybody can learn the required skills to prototype physical products.

A FabLab (Fabrication Laboratory) is an open space equipped with a standard set of machines, equipment and materials, where people from all walks of life can come together with experts to share ideas, then design and make just about anything. The FabCommunity is an international network of more than 400 workshops that all share ideas and experience in digital fabrication.

Three FabLabs for our university

FabLab Kamp-Lintfort

The FabLab Kamp-Lintfort offers over 600 m² of both space and machinery to turn ideas into reality. The goal of the FabLab is to make new technologies such as 3D printers, 3D scanners, laser cutters, and more available to our region.
