Upcoming events (4+)
FREE and open to the public of all ages! This is the time to come and learn how to use the 3D printer and the laser cutter; as well as how to obtain or create files to run on them. The 3D printer has a nominal charge of 10 cents per gram for the filament it consumes; and for the laser some scrap material is available; but for a big project you will need to obtain some hobby plywood (1/8 inch or 3mm birch laminate preferred or acrylic).
This is a time for people who want to find out more about the Makerspace, for non-members to gain access to its tools*, and for anyone who wants to learn more about electronics.
The time is unstructured, but someone will be available to discuss electronics or help people learn with our library of electronics kits.
* Note that some tools will only be available to people who have already qualified on them.
Because of the on-going COVID-19 crisis, masks are required for attendance.
