Melbourne, Florida's makerspace! Now up and running with a toolspace and events! A Makerspace is a community for people who are interested in designing things, learning new stuff, and generally being creative! We gather to share our interests in 3d printing, laser cutting, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and the latest gadgets. Makerspaces have a set of community-owned tools to share, and host classes and events to help encourage people to enjoy learning and creating. it's a great chance to meet other people who share these interests, and expand your own skills. For more information please join us!
This is the time to come and develop your drawing, painting, molding, crafting, beading creative skills among friends. Even digital graphic art techniques. Every Thursday evening 7:00 PM till 9
Each week we'll work on different projects using the various tools around the makerspace such as:
• Vacuum form plastic sheets over various shapes to make chocolate molds.
• Laser engrave rubber sheets to make custom ink stamps.
• Use the sewing machine to make costumes, curtains or embroidery.
• Kids can create things from cardboard, legos, glue and much more!
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).
Beginning October 1st, 2016 we have an exciting new lineup of public access times for at least 2 hours a day, 7 days a week. Sunday Metal working, Monday wood shop, Tuesday programming, Wednesday Arts and Crafts, Thursday Game night, Friday 3D printing and laser cutter, and Saturday morning Arduino, Raspberry Pi and breadboard electronics.
