Our first meeting at our new makerspace will be on Saturday 2nd of April starting at 1 PM.
This will be a real makerspace and our permanent location for the foreseeable future. We can have equipment such as laser cutters, 3D printers and computers permanently set up. There is already a huge collection of hand and power tools, along with a welder, guillotine and a hot wire foam cutter, that we can use.
There is space to store member projects, no more hauling projects and equipment from home and back again.
The space will be a joint venture with Swinburne University. That means we will be sharing the facility with students from Swinburne. In the future Swinburne will be investing in new equipment for the makerspace that we will share with Swinburne students.
Having a makerspace at a university will encourage students to use what they have learned in a practical way and maybe become members of MESH. A permanent place will also allow visitors to see what a makerspace can do for them.
