What we're about

Have you ever wished there were an AWESOME makerspace or hackerspace in the Salt Lake City area? A place where you can find like-minded tinkerers, hardware entrepreneurs, engineers, artists and makers?

We're building Utah's premiere makerspace and we'd love it if you'd join us. Our space is located right next to the Utah Arts Alliance's Art Hub at 663 100 S, Salt Lake City, UT 84104.

We're excited! Come to our public meetings or committee meetings. Be a part of our not-for-profit organization and steer this ship in the right direction. The larger our group, the more likely this endeavor will continue to be self-sustaining. In other words, we need you!

Check out our schedule of classes (analog electronics, cosplay costumes, DIY kids, etc.) and our roster of tools (laser cutter, CNC routers, 3D printers, wood shop, welder, etc.)

https://membership.makesaltlake.org/plans/memberships/

We will go over the best use practices to extend the life of the machines as much as possible and make the most of each print.

-The resin printers print at a slower rate for the size, cost more for materials, have a smaller print bed, and require more after care than a standard 3D filament printer

-MSL will charge for each print by the amount of resin used as recorded by the machine

-While there are upsides to using a resin printer as opposed to a regular filament printer, please contact @Serg NR on slack if you have any questions if this course is right for you.

We'll also cover:

+Safety and damage avoidance
+Our printer configuration files: where to get them, how to use them
+Rules and regulations
+Setup, settings, and cleanup
