Neil Gershenfeld, founder of the first FabLab

Neil Gershenfeld, director of MIT’s Center for Bits and Atoms, is best known as a pioneer in personal fabrication - small-scale manufacturing enabled by digital technologies, which gives people the tools to build literally anything they can imagine. His famous Fab Lab is immensely popular among students at MIT, who crowd Gershenfeld's classes. The team around Gershenfeld is now working with the Trotec Laser machines.

Feedback from MIT students

"We are really excited to have such advanced users like the MIT students among the Trotec laser operators and are really looking forward to their feedback and input.", Andreas Penz, CEO of Trotec.
