What we're about

If you consider yourself a garage tinkerer, a late-night maker or are merely curious to discover the wide variety of ways your ideas can come to life, you'd find yourself at home in the MakeMIA community.
Our community interests range from 3D printing toothbrush holders through car modifications and everything in between. Laser cutting, wood engraving, sewing and epoxy all interest us and drive us to expand our skills and tinker with how things go together.

MakeMIA is a makerspace located in Doral which offers membership access to a wide variety of tools to work on their projects. We are also an open community of like-minded builders, tinkerers and creators intended to share ideas and knowledge with each other and our wider community (through events, open houses and project presentations).
Our goal is to form a community within Miami where builders can come and socialize with each other, collaborate and grow their small projects and ideas into big, life changing adventures.

You can find out more about MakeMIA by visiting our website @ http://www.makemia.com

Our facility is equipped with a wide variety of tools for members to use. We have a metal shop with a knee mill, lathe, cnc taig mill and x-carve router which full members can leverage for their more complex projects. On that side we also have welding gear, a vertical and horizontal bandsaw, small sandblasting cabinet and vibratory polisher for finishing things up.
For our half facility membership we have the following tools available;
Flashforge and Markforge 3D printers
80W CO2 Laser Engraver/Cutter
Cricut Vinyl Cutter
Brother SE400 Embroidery and Sewing Machine
Silkscreen System (one screen system but works really well!)
Vaquform vacuum former
Soldering station
Computer station (with Solidworks and equipment software installed)

In addition to the tools we offer we are open Sundays from noon to 8 for anyone to drop by and say "hi", get a tour or chat about our/your projects. We beginning to hold classes on Saturdays and/or Sundays covering the such topics as the basics of welding, 3D printing, robotics, soldering, etc.

We are trying to build a community of makers and understand that projects come and project go; we would still like for you to have a place to come and talk with others, become a member if you are inclined to, leverage the tools for your projects and build awesome projects. To that end we encourage you to contact us if you have any questions or want to learn more about how we can grow this community together!
