We have a cornucopia of tools in our wood shop. You can any of them as a general member once you have taken the wood safety class. However, sanding disc and saw blades wear and need to be replaced. Donations to maintain the space can be dropped in the member drop box with a note, or you can buy supplies for your community shop if you feel so inclined. Karma is King!

Yakima Maker Space has a handful of 3D printers for our members to use.  However, due to the finicky nature of these devices, it is best to check to make sure they are up and running before booking time on machines to print your projects. In this area, you can use one of the various CAD programs to get your file ready and then use Cura of Prusa slicer to estimate the material costs and print time for your prints. Once you have an estimate and you have confirmed 3D printers are working and book time on the machine you will be using for your print. You are required to provide your own materials. This equipment has a bit of a learning curve so you are encouraged to take a workshop to get up and running.
