FabNewport is creating a community FabLab at the Florence Gray Center in Newport. The equipment – computer controlled routers, laser cutters, vinyl cutters, 3D printers and more – will allow Newport County residents to make just about anything they want. FabNewport is scheduled to open in February 2013. In the meantime FabNewport, thanks to a $25K grant from the van Beuren Charitable Foundation, purchased a Replicator 2 3D printer and a Roland vinyl cutter and will run workshops in community centers and schools.
