Maker & Hacker Spaces

Make Salt Lake City

Several of us visited Make SLC's open house last night (formerly EnjoGo). It's a Maker space / Hacker space (with more of an emphasis on the Maker part). It's in a largish warehouse behind an electronics store on 3424 South Main Street.

Access: 24-7 with membership

Classes: Occasionally (e.g., microcontroller introduction last night. Sounds like they have regular woodworking workshops)

Equipment:

  • A pretty serious laser cutter (the only thing that requires an additional fee - $0.25 a minute)
  • 2.5 3D printers (filament free with membership unless you're printing a ton)
  • Pretty much every woodworking thing you'd want (disclaimer: I'm not a woodworker)
  • Some setups for vacuum forming
  • Some welding setups
  • No sewing machines/sergers/etc., but looking to add them
  • … maybe other visitors will add :)

What it doesn't look people do much of is hang around and work on laptops (there may be some of that, but it doesn't seem optimized for it).

Dues: $50/month, $35/month for student. You could always look into teaching a class to make it back
