The FABLAB|OWL has joined the „MAKER VS. VIRUS“ network. Here developers exchange construction plans, needs and capacities are coordinated, people seeking help are networked with helpers – even nationwide and state wide. Anyone who needs help or would like to help themselves in the network with their own equipment can get in touch with the members of the network: https://www.makervsvirus.org/
In order to now produce aids such as face shields and door openers, the FABLAB|OWL has moved its 3D printers and digital sewing machine to the home office, as the university’s rooms are currently closed. Dedicated students and affiliated makers from the region produce the urgently needed articles with the help of the devices in their own four walls.
