Public Access 3D Printing and Laser Cutting

New Melbourne MakerSpace

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). 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.
