Facilities

Find out why we have some of the best makerspace and hackerspace facilities in Brisbane with professionally maintained tools that you can count on.
3D Printing

Our fleet of 3D printers are optimised for different uses. The fully enclosed adventurer 3 & 4 printers are great for PLA or ABS, and our Mars 2 Pro prints resin with incredible resolution.

All of these printers are well maintained and very simple to use.

Laser Cutting

Our professionally maintained laser cutter allows you to create amazing custom signage, project enclosures, works of art and more. It can engrave and cut up to 9mm sheet materials including acrylic, MDF, plywood, foam, and more!

Our camera assisted software means you can drag and drop your drawing straight onto your workpiece. The workflow is optimised for ease of use with a camera and auto focus system built right in.

CNC Router (Coming Soon!)

We’ve acquired a large CNC router and are waiting for it to arrive. We expect it will be available for members to use by September 20th. Sign up to our mailing list for updates, or contact us for more information.

The CNC router will have a huge 1250x750mm work area and be capable of very fine detail carving from a range of materials like timber and softer metals like Aluminium. It will have a powerful 1.5kW spindle.

Arts and Crafts

We have a huge range of arts and crafts consumables and tools. We have boxes full of paint, pens, pencils, stationary, sewing, different glues, knitting and crocheting materials just to name a few! We also have a sewing machine and overlocker for serious sewing.

We also have lots of “bits and bobs” to finish off your paper and other crafts like sequins, pipe cleaners, construction paper, card, calligraphy pens and more!

Use our circuit for sewing and paper crafts, artwork, vinyl stickers, cards, party invitations and decor, iron-ons, centrepieces, leather pieces and more!

What is a makerspace / hackerspace?
A makerspace or hackerspace generally refer to the same thing. According to hackerspaces.org, they are "community-operated physical places, where people share their interest in tinkering with technology, meet and work on their projects, and learn from each other."

We think the phrase "makerspace" is more inclusive and friendly than "hackerspace" as the latter often has a negative connotation. There are several makerspaces or hackerspaces in Brisbane. We hope to differentiate ourselves by providing the best quality tools and resources, and by fostering a friendly and engaging community that is fun to be a part of.

Whether you want to call it a hackerspace or makerspace, we think everyone will have a great time and learn new skills. We encourage you to come along to one of our classes or free tours to learn more and see what all the fuss is about!
