FAB9 is a makerspace. We provide tools, technology, and training for anyone interested in making. Our space is purpose built for designing and creating, with open-access to high end prototyping equipment for a monthly membership fee.


We’re a place for hardware entrepreneurs, engineers, designers, tinkerers, craftspeople, artists, and anyone who wants to experiment and explore through the making of physical objects.

At FAB9 you can get your hands on tools, from wood-working equipment to CNC router, laser cutters and 3D printers. Whether you’re an amateur completing your dream DIY project or an inventor set to create the next world-changing product, we’re open to all skill and interest levels.

FAB9 is a collaborative and supportive space, where skills are pooled and knowledge is shared.


We collaborated with local Melbourne architecture studios Therefore and Ample to bring you an open, inclusive, and adaptable space, with five different labs under one roof.


Making may be a part-time passion or a full-time profession, so we offer flexible access and rates. Our memberships start at only $99 a month.
