Explore A Virtual Fabrication Lab

School Fab Lab Virtual Reality (SFL VR) makes it possible for anyone to experience a digital fabrication laboratory from anywhere, using virtual reality!

School Fab Lab VR – App for HTC VIVE

School Fab Lab Virtual Reality replicates an environment simulating a physical presence where users delve into different stations and learn about various digital fabrication processes.

 

Immersion in the Fabrication Laboratory enables you to interact with machines, learning how to use them and what is possible to fabricate. Fly drones, build 3D printers and explore the virtual lab.

Intended to reach any student, K-12 school, or educational institution, SFL VR provides knowledge and training on digital fabrication without requiring physical access to the machines or space.

If you want to build a Makerspace, this environment helps you to understand machine size, space required, and layout in respect to your physical space.


App Features

  • 3D Print, Laser Cut, Vinyl Cut, and CNC Mill various objects out of a multitude of materials
  • Practice flying a drone with flight simulation using first-person-view (FPV)
  • Learn how to assemble and disassemble 3D printers
  • Operate Machines to understand the digital fabrication process
  • Pick up objects to examine what you build to understand object physics and dynamics
  • Find pre-selected objects online to bring into the VR space
  • Customize space layout

About us

Our passion is to empower youth with 21st century skills. Our mission is to improve the teaching of science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM) in schools, utilizing mixed reality as a toolset for educators.

Over the last four years, we developed Virtual Reality (VR) and Augmented Reality (AR) applications to bring digital fabrication laboratories, known as Fab Lab Makerspaces, to K-12 education. The Apps empower educators to create immersive environments that bring digital fabrication machines into their classroom. Students learn how 3D Printers, Laser Cutters, Vinyl Cutters and CNC Milling Machines work and experience fabricating various objects. With this new tool teachers and students can design, configure and transform their classroom into a virtual Fab Lab Makerspace using VR, AR and situated learning.


We are currently developing an AR application
Join the Closed Beta and help make the School Fab Lab AR experience even better!
