About the Makerspace

Utilize an array of new and emerging technologies including 3D printing, vinyl cutting, and VHS / film to digital conversion. Looking to book Makerspace equipment or learn more by setting up an appointment? Visit our calendar below.

3D Printer

New to 3D printing? Review our short 3D Printing Course here, then scroll down this page to book an appointment at the Fleming Branch, or call Fleming or Maple Acre. Both 3D printers print high quality 3D objects in a single colour. You can grab free open source designs from Thingiverse, or learn to design your own objects.

Cricut Vinyl Cutter

Both the Fleming and Fonthill Branches have a Cricut that cuts vinyl with precision. Design anything you want in 2-D format and let the Cricut do the rest.

VHS / Film to Digital Format Conversion

Convert old home videos to DVD or digital format to make them easier to store and share at the Beamsville Branch. The Makerspace is also equipped to convert film negatives into digital format to store and share. Note: please bring your own DVDs or USB stick.

Button Maker

Both the Beamsville and Fonthill Branches have a button maker on which you can customize and press your own buttons. Print and press any design that you want!
