Idea Fab Labs Santa Cruz is a member-driven creation zone located on the second-floor at the Wrigley Building at 2879 Mission Street, Santa Cruz, CA. We are building a space for technical and artistic minds to come together and build a community.
Idea Fab Labs is an open environment meant to foster innovation through hands-on learning and collaboration. Idea Fab Labs encourages an open source culture.
Design is a big part of digital fabrication. Tools such as the Laser Cutter and 3D Printer lend to rapid prototyping, allowing for a project to go from concept to physical reality in moments. This results in quick development of new design ideas as a rapid succession of prototypes can be created, tested, and improved on.
Idea Fab Labs is a learning environment. Members may take and teach classes, lectures or workshops and peer-to-peer learning and open-source cooperation are encouraged.
