UT Arlington FabLab Project | A description of FabLab user analysis

In October 2014, UT Arlington Libraries became the first in the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area to have a fully functional Fabrication Lab, FabLab for short. The lab is intended to provide access to technologies, opportunities for interdisciplinary collaboration, training, industry mentorship, and spaces for inspiration to engender invention and entrepreneurship in the student and larger DFW community. This white paper provides a detailed overview of the user analysis conducted at the end of spring semester in 2015, as a run-up to the anticipated summer expansion of the FabLab beyond its initial layout and equipment.
