Fixme is a hackerspace in the Lausanne region, Switzerland. Our weekly meetings are on Wednesdays from 19h, electronics meetings are on Fridays from 19h, and we're also open any time a member is present (see opening status on our site!). Feel free to come for a visit!

The Fixme hackerspace in the Lausanne region welcomes you with open arms. We host weekly general and electronics meetings, as well as events on other days, such as meetups, workshops, debates, CTFs, and more. The hackerspace can be accessed by foot (15 minutes from Renens-VD), bus (Bus 17, Renens-Village; Bus 32/33, Chêne), or car. It is located in the IRL+ building, on the "2ème étage" (that's the 3rd floor in English), in the Univercité space.

At the space you'll find something for everyone: we have everything from a giant plasma cutter to soldering irons, as well as everything in between - 3D printers, a CNC machine, laser cutters, woodworking machinery, digital fabrication tools, a PCB fabrication workstation, solder rework equipment, as well as a huge selection of new and used components (looking for laser optics? or bitcoin miner parts? yup, we have that). People-wise we're very open and awesome. Amongst the 100+ members, ~80 of whom pay membership fees, we have students, hackers, ceos, marketers, technicians, apprentices, designers, bitcoin experts, startup founders, teachers,... we're incredibly open to everyone and we don't bite (but we may nibble a bit ;). We also have a ton of space available, with close to 1000m² usable by anyone. There is a 250m² workshop area, a 100m² conference area, a 150m² co-working area, a 250m² bio-hacklab, several meeting rooms, and more. There are currently plans to put in place a kitchen/café/bar, a war/project room, as well as a sleeping/showering area for visitors. Just below us we have a lovely artisanal brewery that supplies us beer from time to time, and just above us there is a ceramics workshop and a archeology research facility coming into place.

We obviously have a large selection of drinks (4 different beers; club mate), snacks, arduinos, raspberry pi's, usb chargers/cables, and more on sale!
