The CreationStation has two Prusa Research 3D printers available for use. Use of the 3D printers and materials are free. Any 3D design or CAD software that allows exporting to STL format is great for designing your own files, but novices may prefer to download a pre-made file from online libraries of digital designs, which makes printing as easy as picking a project from a catalog.
The CreationStation offers a Cricut Maker, Cricut Joy, and Cricut Easy Press 2 for free use. Limited materials are available, so patrons may bring their own. The Cricut Maker or Joy are perfect for paper projects, iron on decals or vinyl stickers; the Maker can also cut light-weight leather and balsa wood. Users can pick free designs, or import their own images into Cricut’s Design Space software. The Cricut Easy Press 2 is a heat press for iron-on vinyl projects.
The CreationStation Makerspace offers a variety of tools for textile crafting, embroidery and sewing, including Brother sewing machines, a Juki overlock/serger machine, crochet hooks/knitting needles, sewing needles and threads and wearable LED supplies.
Buttons are an extremely popular way to market a brand, promote a cause, or just show off your favorite characters. Download images from the internet or design your own to have professional looking results in seconds on the CreationStation’s 58mm Button Maker.
