I made my copy @FabLab RUC, where I study Communication. At the university they have this cool place, where you can use 3D printers, CNC mills, Lasercutters and a lot more. I usually spend a few hours a week here, nerding as much as possible. Great place. Please take a look at their webpage here:, and also look at their facebook page here.
