FabCafe is a place to accelerate creative serendipity with a nice cup of We believe food that is prepared with care can bring the happiness to people. And we also believe that the movement of personal fabrication is more of a social revolution where people can turn their ideas into reality and share their ideas in more tangible ways. Local ownership on a global platform A single FabCafe can be a creative hub for designers and the local community to share and experiment with innovative ideas. A network of FabCafe communities worldwide can create an ecosystem that kickstarts the next mass customization movement from the bottom up!

  37. 37. Laser Cutter The laser cutter is a FabCafe essential due to its versatility and popularity. They have mainstream appeal with 2D Designers, ar- chitects, Illustrators and non-designers. The into 3D design. Machine recommendations: UNIVERSAL VLS6.60 60W (FabCafe Tokyo and Taipei) PLS 6.150D (FabCafe KOIL) - Universal laser cutters are high quality and reliable. - The VLS6.60 machine is an appropri- ate size for a cafe. Smaller machines are available at a cheaper price but may not perform at the highest standard. - Please note that laser cutters produce exhaust gases when cutting plywood and acrylic board. Take care to provide appropriate extraction.
  38. 38. 3D Printer 3D printers are an iconic piece of equipment in the “Maker movement” - they allow users to quickly prototype and make customizable, so printers quickly become outdated. We recommend having at least one as demand and curiosity remains high. Please note that a limited amount of people currently can make the data for 3D so 3D printing workshops are required, Machine recommendations: CUBE (FabCafe Tokyo and Taipei) KEY- ENCE Agilista (FabCafe KOIL) - Reasonable price and speed. - We believe that two low spec machines are more useful than one high spec machine.
  39. 39. 3D Scanner 3D scanners analyze real-world objects to collect data on its shape and appearance which is used to construct digital three di- mensional models. High cost and large space requirement means the scanner is a non-essential item but remain an attractive machine due to its popularity. 3D scanners are especially useful for design making events and workshops.
