What Is the Makerspace?
McMillan's Makerspace is an exciting new service that builds on our 130 year tradition. It supports our mission of strengthening the community through lifelong learning. The Makerspace is our newest resource for education and training, supplementing those at local schools, MSTC, and UW-Stevens Point.
We created this space to inspire our community to explore their creativity by providing tools for projects, video, sound, photography, art, design, prototyping, robotics, electronics, and automation. We have been able to provide fabrication tools in the form of 3D printers, a laser printer, and a small CNC mill to allow people to create tangible objects from computer designs. The Studio doubles as a training and program space. McMillan's subscription to Gale Courses provides training support for the Adobe Creative Cloud software loaded on the computers in the Studio.
