Our workspace is the hybridization between a design studio and an artisan shop, between a workshop and an architecture studio.
Izlab MakerSpace is open to public
The spaces, some tools and materials are available to enthusiasts, designers, makers and in general to anyone who needs a space to make or repair something.

To access the MakerSpace it is necessary to fill in the information (find the form here, or we will provide it directly to you in the laboratory).
If you are competent or your job is simple you can go to the laboratory and work.
If you have any doubts, before starting we recommend that you ask us for a quick consultation to understand, for example, which materials to choose, which types of joints to use, how to optimize the material, which types of finish to use, etc.
To access the MakerSpace it is not necessary to book, but it is better to call the day before to check that our operators in the laboratory are not absent for deliveries.
Reservation is required in case of long, complex or large-scale work.
It is possible to visit our space, also for groups and classes. In the case of classes, it is best to advise (you can contact us here).
The MakerSpace is equipped with the following services (included in the price): a dressing room, heating in winter and air conditioning in summer, PPE (personal protective equipment), Wi-Fi, kitchen and office to carry out planning or managing work.
It is also possible to rent our truck (excluded from the price).
We do not rent equipment; it is allowed to use it only within the MakerSpace.
If you are lucky you can find the material in our warehouse among the unused pieces (we evaluate the material at cost price), or you can go to the Bricocenter nearby, bring it from home or find it from our suppliers according to what you need (contact us for more information).
For large supplies we can have the material delivered here, or transported by our own means.
We do not use spray and / or powder paints, but only water-based paints (rolled or brushed), which therefore do not contain solvents.
However, we can recommend suppliers to turn to for spray or powder coatings.
You can pay in cash, by cards, PayPal or Satispay. Or, consuming the value of your Izcard.

Placing your items on sale
It is possible to make and make objects and then put them up for sale. It is normal for us to host makers, artists and artisans (such as Silvia Picari, Monica Taverniti e Fortress).
We can also offer advice in terms of incubation and business support.
All the machines (see those listed below) can be used, with the exception of the squaring machine, the planer and the band saw. For these, and therefore to carry out cuts and planing, the labor of an operator is required (these machines, therefore, cost 7 € / 15 min).
Carpentry tools can be welded and used.
It is not possible to use this tool freely, except after having completed the CNC course and after a short period of coaching with us.
If you have already used a CNC and are able to generate Gcode files with a CAM, you will still need a quick consultation on approaching our machine.
