We aim to meet the needs of a growing creative community

by offering access to tools, education, and support.

Don’t have time to complete your project?

We can help with that too.

Coming Soon
Right now we can help you with full-service 3D printing and small laser cutting projects. And we’re planning classes with the Courtenay library and Linc for May-June.

We’re targeting July to be fully open.

Our pricing will have several tiers: membership, drop-in, full-service, full-service rush.

Note: Some tools will require safety training before use.
