    NOVA Makers

    Rick, the best advice I could give you is to come get to know us. Our next Open House is Dec 13 where you can see our space, meet our people, and learn about our projects. You'll see our laser cutter, 3D printer, CNC mill and much more. You'll also get an overview of how we operate and you'll be attending our one year anniversary since opening. In the near future we're doubling our size by expanding next door. Come get to know us & you might find a maker community where you can learn new skills.
