Free Clock-Building Workshop

Learn the basics of 3D modelling as you design and build your own wooden clock!

Please bring your own laptop. If you don’t have access to a laptop, there is a limited number that can be provided for your use. The software we will use is a popular modelling program called fusion 360, for which we will email download and setup instructions.

Schedule: The workshop will be held over two sessions (both of which need to be attended) from 6 PM to 8 PM on Wednesday, September 27 and Wednesday, October 4.

If you would like to participate, please sign up here.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to email for more information.


3D Modelling and Makerspace Drop-In

Come visit us Thursdays from 1 – 4 PM and take advantage of our 3D printers, sewing machines, vinyl cutter, and more!

To use a 3D printer, please (for best results) bring a laptop with your model in Fusion 360. If you don’t have a laptop or a Fusion 360 model, that’s OK; extra computers and help will be available on-site for any modelling questions you may have.

Prices are charged to your MUN account and they will be based on print time and materials.

Also available for use are two Singer Stylist sewing machines and a Cricut Explore Air 2.
