Something Wicked (COOL,) This Way Comes – 3-D Carving In Bozeman
Bozeman MakerSpace is making the latest in digital manufacturing technology available to area makers for the first time. The maker space has won a contest from Chicago-based Inventables to receive a free 3D carving machine, a new technology like 3D printing that is revolutionizing the way physical objects are designed and manufactured.
3D carving, also commonly known as a CNC milling, is technology capable of creating precision parts and designs from real materials like wood and metal, unlike consumer-grade 3D printers which can only use strands of plastic to create objects.
The types of projects that can be made using this technology include wood furniture, aluminum machine parts, and electronic circuit boards, to name a few.
The Bozeman MakerSpace is a non-profit Makerspace / Hackerspace. They are a community workshop and combined meeting space where people of similar interests or skills can converge to create, modify, learn, talk and build. The maker space is open to the public every Thursday at 6pm.
