Although we are a makerspace for members to produce projects for themselves, we also provide fabrication and production services on all of our machines and processes. These services are quoted for on a case by case basis. To quote, we need ready-to-go files from which we can work out machining time and costs.
Our 3-axis ShopBot CNC machine has a working area of 2440 x 1220mm (8′ x 4′) and is capable of cutting various woods and plastics.
We also offer finishing services such as sanding and oil treatment.
We have two laser cutters, an Epilog Mini 24 and Laserscript LS1290. The smaller Epilog (600x300mm work area) is ideal for intricate detailed engraving and smaller parts, whilst the Laserscript with it’s large 1200x900mm work area is ideal for larger pieces.
Our Ultimaker 3D printers allow us to run good quality FDM prints relatively quickly. Our 3D printing services are the ideal rapid prototyping facility.
We generally print with PLA and have wide variety of colours to choose from.
