We are primarily a social group where people can make new connections, and socialise around our common love of making things. We run regular social events and volunteer working bees, and rely on the generous support of our volunteers to operate.

Community Events

The core to how we operate is our community. We help members make new friends and social connections by facilitating regular events. We run community events like our open nights, working bees, social games nights/meetups, and workshops.

3D Printing
Our 3D printers are optimised for different uses. The fully enclosed adventurer 3 & 4 printers are great for PLA or use the dual extruder Creator 3 for ABS and speciality filaments. Our Mars 2 Pro prints resin with incredible resolution. All of these printers are well maintained and very simple to use.
