Members will find plenty of space to spread out and stabilize their project using our industrial strength tables to drill, cut, plan, and put together their project. Project Alley is used on a first come first serve basis to our members, and can serve as your workstation while you're using the space. Pull-down electrical outlets and wi-fi are available to provide you have access to all you need for projects.
The Woodshop houses a Sawstop Professional Table Saw, 20" planer, 17" bandsaw, miter saw, and various sanders as well as our 4' x 8' Shopbot CNC router. In addition, we have a large variety of powertools and handtools available for member checkout on site.
The Think Tank invites members to map out the beginning stages of their idea. This area is equipped with several tables to imagine, collaborate, and create the blueprint of your design. In addition, our 3 Ultimaker 3D printers are located in this studio area. Members can reserve our Makerbot, Ultimaker S3 and Ultimaker S5. Ultimaker Cura software (free to download) is needed to design and format your file. Makerbot requires an SD card and the S3 & S5 require a thumb drive for your file storage and input.
Housed along with the Fishers Parks office, you’ll find 3 Maker Lab classrooms to teach, train, and inspire makers to craft their next project. In any of our Maker Labs, you might see in progress a camp, program, or training taking place. Maker Labs will be used primarily during the school year during the day for our Maker First program with HSE 5th graders.
When you arrive to the Fishers Parks Headquarters and Maker Playground entrance you'll be greeted with an open area of exploration. Here anyone can use materials on our carts to tinker, cut, build and create! It's a great place for mini makers to be introduced to the art of hands-on projects. Visit us during Fishers Parks office hours 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday, to tinker!
