I got a very sad email from Technopolis last week, to bring the message that they will shut down the FabLab service. This was my home on Saturdays and I really loved to come there and experiment with my ideas. This was there email:

We hebben ondertussen de werking en de activiteiten van het FabLab onder de loep genomen, en met pijn in ons hart hebben we weloverwogen besloten om de Fablab-service stop te zetten. 

Onze excuses voor het ongemak en bedankt voor je begrip.


In the mean time, we have investigated the activities of the FabLab and we made the well considered decision to shut down the FabLab service.

Our apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for the understanding.

Luckily, you need a non-broken heart first to create a broken one, so I can reuse it for Valentines Day in two weeks. I ordered a blue polished polyamide 3d print on i.materialise. If I receive the part, I will create a post with pictures of the model. My heart 3d models can be downloaded on Thingiverse

Download the broken heart here.

You can take away the laser cutter and 3d printer from a maker, but our creativity is indestructable…
