Come and join us in making boardgames!

Link to Sign up

The event will be held at the QEII Library on Saturday, August 18th. Because of limited supplies and space, we are going to be capping this event at 20 people. If you want to come, please sign up above.

This is an all-day event

Registration begins at 8 am

Awards will be given at 5 pm

You will form groups and then build a board game, supplies will be provided. The Makerspace tools and DMC printing will be made available: this includes small 3D prints, vinyl cutting, and card printing. If you want to do any 3D modeling or graphic design for printing, there will be a few computers available or you can bring your own.

Free pizza for lunch will be provided!

The team that makes the most interesting and fun game will win Arduino Kits.

The runner-up team will win $25 gift cards to Midgard Gaming.

Free 3D Design Workshop – Intro to CAD and 3D Printers

The Makerspace is holding a FREE workshop next Wednesday, August 8th from 12-2PM! This workshop will teach the basics of 3D design, including how to design a simple 3D object from scratch, how to import the object to a 3D printer, and how they operate. These concepts open up the doors to a lot of design possibilities, and answer a lot of commonly asked questions!

Tentacles of Blue PLA

Here’s an object that a Makerspace client printed yesterday! What’s neat is that about this object is that you can 3d print movable joints!

MUN Archaeology Grad Students in the Makerspace

A group of MUN Archaeology students were in the Makerspace learning CAD (computer assisted design) and doing some 3d printing. The group approached the Makerspace as they are interested in exploring the use of 3d printers within their profession. This is a free workshop that The Commons is providing which includes a small 3d printed artifact for each participant which they will have designed themselves.
