Careers at FabLight

Join us to expand access to affordable metal laser cutting.

We’re making it easy to cut sheet metal and tubes with our industrial-quality machine and intuitive software that’s already being used by businesses and universities for prototyping and production.

​3D FabLight is a spinout company from Otherlab. We incorporated in 2015, launched sales in 2016 with our first FABTECH trade show in Las Vegas, and started shipping production machines in summer 2017. You can read more about our history on our About page or in a 2017 article from The Fabricator.
