Hey guys.
Could someone with some know how take a look at our 3D printer when they have a moment.
A member was using it recently and one of the wires seems to have burned itself clean off from the machine. I'm sorry I can't be more technical then that, but it's not my area of expertise.
We've put an Out of Order sign on it in the meantime.
Sorry for any inconvenience this might cause members.

An Excerpt from the December Economic Development Office Newsletter / City of Summerside

- Posted on December 8, 2015 by

Summerside Economic Development is set to partner with community leaders, to open up the first Makerspace in Summerside. A makerspace is a workshop that provides tools, materials and space in a community environment where youth and adults alike work independently or collaboratively on creative projects in any area – computer programming to woodworking, painting to mechanical engineering.

Participants pay for membership and members offer classes on focused topics for a small fee-per attendee, to raise funds for supplies and other costs including rents and utilities. Corporate members are welcome as are donations of time, treasure and talent in the form of expert advice, donations of supplies and working tools and/or in-kind services.

At the makerspace, people gather to share resources and knowledge, work on projects, network and build. The availability of real working tools and nearby colleagues putting them to practical use opens the doors of thinking big and testing ideas while the culture of do-it yourself, sharing knowledge and experimentation grows the capabilities of the group. Makerspaces are zones of self-directed learning in a shared setting. The makerspace is the ultimate workshop for the tinkerer and the perfect educational space for individuals who learn best by doing.
