Apart from the excellent people, this is likely the reason you're here. Once you're a signed up member, and have completed the general induction you can use the kit here. Some equipment (marked with a 🦄) requires a separate induction, and has its own booking system. How to book equipment time.

Desktop Computers

We have three! All are old-skool Mac Pro towers which were generously donated by MMU's Computer Science department.

You'll find one connected to the 3D printers, another running Windows 10 which is connected to the laser cutter, and a dual-boot machine (Windows 10 and MacOS) for the vinyl cutter.
