What we offer

Each of our facilities includes laser cutters, plastics and electronics labs, a machine shop, a wood shop, a metal working shop, a textiles department, welding stations and a Haas CNC mill. Members have open access to design software, featuring the entire Autodesk Design Suite.

Huge project areas with large work tables are available for completing projects and collaborating with others. Free coffee and fresh popcorn are always available for your enjoyment. We also offer a number of experience-driven corporate events developed specifically to bring teams together and engage them in the act of making.

How it works

It’s simple. Anyone may attend classes. For a monthly or annual fee, members can reserve and use TechShop’s tools upon successful completion of equipment-specific Safety and Basic Use (SBU) classes. Talented staff members are available full time to help develop ideas and improve technical skills.

You really have to see it to believe it. Stop by for a tour with one of our Dream Consultants and have all your questions answered. Whatever your background or skill sets, come in and prepare to be inspired!
