Trainings

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.

We offer free training sessions every week and private individual training sessions by appointment.

Individual TrAining

At Happylab you also have the opportunity to book appointments for private machine trainings. An individual training takes about an hour and gives you the know-how you need to work on the machine. A maximum of five people can attend the training. Cost: € 50 per appointment

ONLINE TEst & Self-study

Instead of face-to-face training, Happylab members can also take an online test in the members portal. Our tutorial videos and the Happylab Wiki serve as learning templates for self-study. Right now the online test is available for the laser cutter, cutting plotter & sewing machine/Overlock. The tests will be expanded to other machines!

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
