Why we're unique!

The CNC makers and machine builders facilty is hosted by MIT's 'Maker Czar' in the Precision Compliant Systems Laboratory.  We learn about, and build cool things, for example, we might take apart a 3D printer, all of it, (nozzle, drive system, etc...) and then we'll build our own 3D printer.  Making machines like this requires learning basic and advanced techinques, so we help members learn both.  Don't worry what level you're at, we'll help you learn to use anything from hand tools to CNC programming and CNC machines.
