LJMU Fab Lab installed at Baltic Creative

Liverpool John Moores University has installed a pop-up laboratory in Baltic Creative to showcase a range of technology and digital fabrication demonstrations, with laser cutters, and 3D scanners and printers.

This event will give creatives the chance to “meet the makers” and explore the opportunities for research and collaboration.

The Fab Lab will be just the start of a series of events that hope to engage more people with the technology that is supporting the digital fabrication revolution.

Everyone is invited to drop into the Baltic Creative throughout the day and explore the Fab Lab and attend The Fab Social to meet and chat with fellow digital explorers.

Lol Baker, of LJMU explained:

“Fab Lab Liverpool is a place for people to make almost anything, it is equipped with the digital fabrication tools and technologies for 3D scanning and printing, laser cutting, vinyl plotting, 3D modeling, CAD, electronic prototyping and programming.

“The initiative underpins LJMU’s commitment to support the local, national, and global economy by building opportunities for collaborative knowledge and technology exchange.”

The Digital Fabrication Laboratory at the School of Art and Design at LJMU offers the tools and education to help innovators and inventors engage with the technology behind digital fabrication.

Managing director of Baltic Creative, Mark Lawler, said:

“Baltic Creative is keen to support creative and digital industries in any way we can.

“The series of Fab Lab events, in partnership with LJMU, will bring the very latest tech equipment into the heart of the Baltic Triangle, Liverpool’s cluster of creative and digital businesses.

“Baltic Creative and LJMU have worked closely to develop the series and we hope Baltic Triangle businesses will explore the benefits these technologies can bring to their businesses.”

The next Baltic Creative Fab Labs will take place on 25 March and 22 April, from 2pm – 6pm.
