DIGITAL FABRICATION & RAPID PROTOTYPING
icelaex’s makerspace and fablab offer an open space for innovation equipped with a variety of tools and machine. Through providing coaching for creative youth, they gain hands-on experience of linking their design work to real-time prototyping. Additionally, icealex coaches startups ideas to kick off quality products into the market and grow user-base.

icealex community is looking forward to develop their own designs of a do-it-yourself (DIY) low cost products, made out of materials that are available locally and to promote the skills of how to build such tools to communities throughout Egypt and other countries. They are both planning train-the-trainer workshops across the country and aim to publish the blueprints for such projects and step-by-step instructions online with an open-source license. Our fablab has not only supported but also incubated a number of interesting projects (high / low tech) focusing on local challenges and others. e.g. water purification system, DIY conductive ink, and a portable laser cutter.
