The Makerspaces at William & Mary are open and the community is producing. Printers are running across campus, labs are doing research, LASERs are shooting photons at things, and the fall semester is well underway! Below you can see a little sign recently made on a CNC router in the makerspace center in W.J. Small Hall.
This sign was made in about 20 minutes (manufacturing time) by a faculty member at the School of Education learning the fantastic world of digital design and manufacturing! The wood with which it was produced was actually pulled from the rubbish bin, and is an old pine shelf reinvigorated. Learn CNC and digital design; come spend some time with the makerspaces, our student engineers, and learn how to turn your own trash to treasure.
We’re back at it again! Every Friday from 3-5pm come join us in the Makerspace Engineering Center in Small Hall to learn, practice, and talk about milling, routing, and lathes!
One of our great makerspace student engineers just finished building this uke from plywood and 3D printed bits using the Laguna CNC router and Airwolf 3D Evo printers; check it out!
Have you ever made a ukelele using a CNC router? Want to learn? Take a look as one of our own goes through the process and makes his own! Here’s a video of the top being carved out on the router:
