X-Fab is thanks to its location a crossroad for students with different profiles, start-ups, corporates and researchers wanting to explore digital fabrication. It is now refered to as a prototyping space. It’s a space of 500 m2 and 30-ish machines with a team of 3 to run it. In the previous years we expanded the team as well as the infracstructure and drastically increased the number of people trained (around 300 a year). It is now ready to enter a global network to develop further.
