It looks as though there is a Fab Lab starting in San Diego.

For Angelenos, Sand Diego is just a bit further away then the normal commute to work, :p , so this may be of interest, if you want to use a CNC mill, 3D printer, or laser cutter to build a RepRap or RepStrap.

Wow. This place is a hop skip and jump down the street from me. I will have to stop by and see what this place is about!

Awesome. I will try to make it next time I'm in San Diego this summer!

They've either shut down or moved- I'm hoping the later. I drove down to the site yesterday and they were no longer there. I've tried calling Katie to get the scoop but I've been getting her voicemail. I will try again.

From their website, the Fab Lab seems to be quite active still. They seem to mostly offer programs through UCSD extension, so I'm guessing they just use space on campus for workshops?

They don't seem to be doing any 3D printing, judging from their art gallery. However, there's some really nice lasercutter work! The electronics projects look pretty cool too.

Too bad there isn't a SD user group. I'd love to meet some other reprapers down here! LA is a bit too far for me on a regular basis.
