What we're about

This group is for members and visitors to Makespace, a community workshop in Cambridge, UK. The meetups are organised by community members both in the space and elsewhere in Cambridge.

To tweak your email preferences for the group, please go to https://meetup.meetup.makespace.org/settings/

We would love to meet:

* Community members, enthusiasts, and educational groups who could benefit from a lab in which to work together, network, socialise, and draw on the expertise of others

* People working within local industries looking to innovate in ways that require new skills, equipment and contacts

* Companies and consultancies that support innovation and prototyping, and who could provide training, support, leading to the sale of their services

* Innovators needing to produce physical prototypes to further their ideas

If this could include you, please help us maintain and grow Makespace by joining now, telling us:

* Who you are, and any company/group affiliation
* What you could contribute to and/or how you could benefit from Makespace
* Any other ideas, requirements or suggestions to improve Makespace

Makespace Database Admins

Online event

This meeting is for active Makespace members only. Please RSVP to the waitlist, the organiser will admit you to the meeting.

Come and help make the running of Makespace easier for the benefit of all members! Open to any current member of Makespace.

During these meetings we discuss and work on changes and enhancements to the database and associated IT systems used to provide services to members.

If you already have just a tiny bit of experience with databases or web development this may be the perfect arena for you to extend and improve those skills and learn from other members of the Makespace community.

Raspberry Pi

Makespace classroom

Bring along a project you're working on, or join in with whatever else is going on. It's a good plan to bring your laptop, if you have one.

We got contact to voluntary startup organisation with aim to citizen control of the environment - beginning with small river. In first station they use raspberry pi + pico. Contacts of experts and enthusiast very welcome.

Form 3B Resin Printer Practical - Members Only


Learn how to and demonstrate that you can safely use the Form 3B Resin Printer.

A trainer will have a device with preForm installed but installing and using it on your own laptop is recommended. Having a single simple .stl model makes a training faster as we go through your model loading to the printer.

Please ensure you have successfully completed the online training before adding yourself to the list. Anyone who joins without having done the online training will be moved to waitlist to make space for others. You need to have scored 100% in both quizzes.
