(III) Vision: To create a digital, innovative and intelligent factory Fab Factory which can unleash infinite creativity
Fab Factory旨在搭建释放创造力的数字创新智造工厂。未来数字化制造的关键在于“开源”，人人都可以通过网络进行资源共享，赋予更多人创造的动力。更进一步推进FabLab 2.0 机器制造机器，使用数字化制造硬件结合开源设计设备为本地化生产下一代机器提供硬件 支持，为更多创新产品提供创造平台，探索生物、航天、海洋等更多不同领域，推动数字化制造浪潮。通过网络共享的平台获取来自全世界各地的资源如开源设计、开源代码等，缩短项目开发周期，最大化发展并保持更多深圳本地生产制造及供应链的资源优势，为更多创客及创新创业团队走向更前沿的商业化进程助力。
Fab Factory aims to build a digital, innovative and intelligent factory which can unleash infinite creativity. The key to digital manufacturing in the future lies in “open source”, which can allow everyone to share resources through the Internet and encourage more people to create. Efforts should be made to advance the FabLab 2.0, to provide hardware support for localized production of next-generation machines by using digital manufacturing hardware combined with open-source design equipment, and platforms for more creative products in diverse areas such as biology, aerospace and marine, and to promote the digital manufacturing. Acquire resources from all over the world, such as open source design and open source code, through a shared platform on the Internet, shorten the project development period, and maximize the resource advantages in Shenzhen's local manufacturing and supply chain to help more makers and innovation and entrepreneurship teams to move toward the more cutting-edge commercialization.
