Being a qualified Fablab, in the international Fablab list here. The lab is reserved to citizens wanting to experiment with personal digital fabrication techniques. You are allowed to make personal fabrication and prototypes - but you are not allowed to produce anything for sale. At Copenhagen Fablab we talk a lot about sharing knowledge - you can think of it as our most valued currency. This is a way to give back to the Danish and international FabLab and maker community that has shared a lot of the skills and inspiration that you and I are using now. You share knowledge by documenting your project on this domain, on our Facebook group or any sharing media as long as you tag Copenhagen Fablab. So the deal is; free use of the machines for things that are not for sale. You "pay" by teaching other users how to use the machines and by sharing your findings with others. We have our official Facebook group "Copenhagen Fablab", which is meant for user communication and updates on activities and machines. If you post pictures from Fablab or of things made in the Fablab you can tag them #cphfablab or #copenhagenfablab as well on other social media.
Ideas on what to document* - You do not need to document a finished project on the homepage - you can always go back and add more info. You do not need to include all of the info - but the more you give, the more grateful the community is.
Images - before and after, works in progress
Design files (.ai, .stl, .png, .gcode, .svg etc.)
