Welcome to Fatlab Designs, a boutique 3d printing engraving carving smithing studio in the heart of Warwickshire

David Leask, founder of Fatlab DesignsHi, I’m David Leask and I created Fatlab Designs as a creative outlet for the many techniques and technologies I use when designing and building things. With a background in fabrication engineering, manufacturing and IT, I combine traditional manufacturing techniques in wood, metal and leather with cutting edge CAD and CNC manufacturing technologies. As the business expands I will be adding additional capabilities and new service building on those listed below. In the meantime, have a look around and tell me what you think as I’d welcome any comments or suggestions you may have.
