CNC Fabrication

"CNC" stands for "Computer Numerically Controlled," and CNC Fabrication means "using computers to control machines to make stuff."

By using software to control hardware, we can easily turn our ideas into physical objects, test them, tweak them, and try again. This is called "Rapid Prototyping," and is the foundation of contemporary design.

The Maker Hubs CNC machines include 3D printers, a Laser Cutter, and a Vinyl Cutter. Each machine is best suited for different types of fabrication. Take a look at the pages for individual machines to learn more.

Note: 

- Use of 3D printers and Vinyl Cutters requires an Orientation Session, which can be delivered on a drop-in basis prior to use.

- Use of the Laser Cutter is restricted to authorized staff and volunteers only. Visitors who wish to use the laser cutter will be facilitated by authorized staff, who are available during our open hours

- Use of all 3D printers is free, except for the Formlabs, for which there is a charge for resin. The cost is by volume:

-- Small (0-50ml) $25

-- Medium (50-100ml) $50

-- Large ( > 100 ml) $75

- Some supplies listed here may be out of stock, and we receive new consumables all the time. Please contact the Maker Hub to confirm supplies, or drop by to see what we have available.

 

Please see our Workshops and Events page for the dates and times of our Orientation and Introductory Sessions.
