In our machine trainings, we show you how you can use the machines at Happylab to realize your own projects. This includes correct preparation of the file, the workflow on the machine and safety instructions so you can start right away without any prior knowledge. For most of the machines at Happylab, you first have to complete the respective training before you can work on the machine.

Training courses take place several times a week at Happylab - for Happylab members these are free or can be booked at reduced prices. Alternatively, you can book private individual trainings with our lab managers or complete online tests in the Happylab Members Portal (access only for members!).

Consulting hour

You have an idea but no plan where to start? You've already attended a machine training, but are too afraid to work on the machine alone? In the last few years we've already helped realize many projects and product ideas and are happy to support you with our expertise on digital manufacturing technologies and rapid prototyping!

In a joint brainstorming session, we will address the following questions, among others:

→ Which machine is best suited for my project?

→ What do I have to pay attention to when choosing a material?

→ What are the next steps?

A consulting session with our lab managers takes about an hour and gives you a good overview of the steps you need to take to implement your project on our machines yourself. Cost: € 50 per hour

SUmmer camp for Kids

Do it yourself with 3D printing, electronics & textile design - this is the motto under which summer camps for children from 8 to 12 years old take place in our Happylab!

Summer Holiday program for kids (Age 8 - 12)

This exciting summer week at Happylab is carried out under the motto "Do it yourself - with 3D printing, electronics and textile design". The children become real makers themselves in the one-week summer camps and get to know our makerspace with all its equipment.

Every day a new project is tackled and we will screw, solder, plot and tinker together. Additionally, the children can also let their creativity run wild. In the afternoon it's off to the park, to the museum or to a fun park - depending on your mood and the weather.

Female Makers

Unfortunately, women* are still significantly underrepresented in the maker scene and technology-related making has so far not been very inclusive. We want to change that! Our goal: to inspire more women* to start maker projects and to reduce fear of digital production technologies.

With the Female* Maker Month in May 2022, we have marked the starting point for more equal opportunities in technology-related making. The program includes welding in the metal workshop, furniture making with wood, do-it-yourself bicycle repair and an electronics workshop with ethical hardware.

Welding courses with Maud Eiselsberg

Saturday, June 3rd (10 am - 1 pm & 2 - 5 pm)

The workshops are sponsored by the City of Vienna - Frauenservice Wien (MA 57). Therefore we can offer reduced workshop tickets for women* at 59€ instead of 79€ - while stocks last! The courses provide a low-threshold introduction to working with the welding torch and are ideally suited for beginners!
