Laser cutting and 3D printing in the BUDA::lab

BUDA::lab opens its studio doors for young and old on Science Day. The Budalab community of makers will work with you on the various machines and tools and show you the enormous possibilities of a makerspace. Did you always want to 3D print something yourself? How to laser cut your own Christmas decoration? Or rather interested in which projects BUDA::lab'ers are working on. Come along on the day of science and get to know the BUDA::lab in a hands-on way on several stands.

Type: discovery market
Time: continuous from 10h - 17h
For: Children, families and interested parties
For the 3D printing fanatics BUDA::lab also organises a 3D printer meet-up!

We gather 3D print enthusiasts and our projects to meet and socialise at our casual event.
Exchange knowledge, and work on your 3D printer projects. Do you have a cool printer you want to show off? Have an unfinished printer laying in your closet that you never get to complete? Now is your excuse to bring it out and get motivated! Never seen a 3D printer before and want to know about it? You can come ask questions and see 3D printing demonstrations live.

This event is great for

  • People who own 3D printers
  • People who are curious about 3D printing
  • People who do business in 3D printing
  • 3D artists
  • Anybody who wants to come regardless of reason

Want to bring a 3D printer, 3D printed parts or show off a relevant project? You can attend as long or as short as you want. Please send an email to us what you are bringing, and for how long you plan to attend so we can get an idea of the space we need.

Want to promote your business? Promotional material and selling of some products are allowed, but please ask first by sending an email to
