Our workshop currently has several 3D printers, a plastic former, a laser cutter, several CNC routers, machine tools including a CNC mill, vertical mill and metal lathes and one of the best equipped woodshops you'll ever see! We also have a first-rate electronics bench. We have multiple quad copters and robot kits.

3D Printer Orientation

This class is free. This is the class to take if you would like an introduction to a 3D printer. This class is required for operation of Tampa Hackerspace 3D printers. It covers the basics of 3D printing. Come on down to the space and have your curiosity satisfied about the technology associated with 3D printing. I will bring some models of things that can be made using a 3D printer. We'll cover the software needed to run the printers we have at the space, a DeltaMaker and Hypercube. The printers are can be used for free by paid members of Tampa Hackerspace. Information on becoming a paid member can be found on our website (http://tampahackerspace.com/membership). For a non-member a day pass may be purchased to come back to use the printers at a future date.
