Build your ideas.

FUSE is a Makerspace prototyping lab that supports the economic and educational development of the local community by allowing you to take your idea from start to prototype.

The center will not only support the community as a Makerspace for product development and prototyping, but will also foster excitement and growth in the Albuquerque Innovation district downtown by:

  • Providing a space for innovators to build their products.
  • Creating jobs for the local economy.
  • Supporting new businesses and entrepreneurs in Central New Mexico in the design of new products and technologies.
  • Providing training and education for CNM students and the community.
  • Providing training and events for local schools to stimulate creative thinking.
  • Partnering with the community and organizing local events downtown to promote making, education and business development.

Community Makerspace

Explore, design, and create physical forms in our Community Makerspace.

The Makerspace provides members of the local community – from students to hobbyists – a place to come, explore, design, and physically build things using manufacturing equipment that most individuals don’t own.

Our equipment and educational programs are uniquely tailored to fit the needs of the local community. Contact us with your ideas for improving the FUSE Makerspace.
