APTOS — Cabrillo College Makerspace is currently promoting its community membership programs and equipment trainings, which start up again this month at the Aptos campus.

Opened last year, Cabrillo’s Makerspace is a digital fabrication lab that is available to students and community members alike. After receiving training, one can utilize the lab’s equipment — everything from 3D printers to CNC routers, laser and vinyl cutters to soldering stations.

Community memberships include access to the Makerspace, where trained staff and mentors are on hand to assist. A mandatory safety training is required, and other specialty training sessions are required for use of certain equipment. Monthly and semester-long memberships are available.

Makerspace Community Member Hours begin on Monday. The lab will be open Monday-Friday, 5-8:30 p.m., and is located in rooms 1301-1302, behind VAPA building 3000, at Cabrillo College’s Aptos campus, 6500 Soquel Drive.

Cabrillo College students, faculty and staff may visit the Makerspace free of charge, Monday-Friday, noon-8:30 p.m., starting on Jan. 28.
