The following will get you fully fab lab ready, in other words, you can participate in Fab Academy, research collaborations and all the things a full fab lab is capable of doing. Please note that our computing environment is set up as primarily dual boot Windows/Ubuntu with most all the workflows in the Linux partition. We’ve listed here Windows-based, propriety software along with the open source and freeware that we typically use in fab labs, in case your institution or applications require Windows-based applications. But we believe in the open source approach, which aligns with our mission of democratizing access to the tools and knowledge for education and invention.
