The Fab Lab at the School of Architecture in the University of Puerto Rico, aims at technology like: 3d printers, vinyl cutters, laser cutters, CNCs, and manual tools to facilitate research, creation and invention by supporting a multidisciplinary / collaborative environment in the Rio Piedras Campus, in San Juan, capital of Puerto Rico. Fab Lab UPR provides:

1. Research Lab: Fab Lab UPR provides the space and equipment for specialized curricular courses, thesis and research for undergraduate/ graduate students and instructors.

2. Community Integration- Companies, startups, and individuals make use of our technology and human resources to develop and prototype projects at a competitive price.

3. Integration of ESMAT (Structures and Materials Laboratory): Different research, courses, and external projects that are heavily influenced by digital fabrication, have the added benefit of the Laboratory for Structures and Materials as a branch of the Fab Lab, with an emerging and ever growing library of materials and construction methods.

4. Workshops and Seminars/ External Education: The Fab Lab UPR integrates external collaborations and continued education workshops in topics relating to entrepreneurship, innovation, and research in architecture and design.
