What is Cofabbing : Co-Fabbing : Co-Fabrication at PEV Labs

Cofabbing for us can be defined as:

  • The process of fabbing with two more more individuals fabricating together on the same project.
  • Two ore more fabricators, or skilled craftspersons working in the same space on different projects
  • Multiple Fabricators working in proximity in a shared space such as a Co-Fabrication facility, FabLab or Makerspace

For us the concept came to light after our project, Tinkersmiths Makerspace moved from a community model towards a commercial model. We found some monetization in providing additional skill sets to professional skilled craftspersons. Such as CNC services for woodworkers.
