Fab Lab Baltimore uses a punch-pass system. Each user will pay by the day they use the Lab with multi-day packages available.
$10/day full lab
$40/ 5 days full lab
$75/ 15 days full lab
$5/day computer use
$15/ 5 computer days
$25/ 10 computer days
"Computer use" days are designated by the reservation type. If you reserve to use the computer, that is a "computer use" day. If you reserve a machine for the day, you are able to use a designated computer to adjust files. We recommend using computer days when you are learning the software available in the lab or solely working on files in the lab with no machine use.
