Located in Brunswick, Make-Create is a maker-space that offers memberships for as little as $50 per month (half that for students and the unemployed). In addition to a variety of the kinds of tools you’d expect a makerspace to have an offer, Make-Create owns a CNC router, a laser cutter, and a 3D printer and scanner that’s apparently big enough to model an actual human being. With their classes, one can even learn how to make a 3D printer — and even a drone!
Maker-spaces are a relatively new phenomenon that allow practical men and women to take advantage of tools and machines to complete their dream DIY projects and perfect their skills. Many of these places (also known as 'hackerspaces') provide laser cutters, wood-making tools and even 3D printers. Here, we investigate some of Melbourne's best maker-spaces.
