Mat Cutter

This is a Fletcher 2100 Mat Cutter. It lives under the light table in the Casting and Moldmaking area. To assemble it, use the thumb screws to attach the two support arms. 

CAM with Fusion360

VCarve and OMAX are both platform-specific software with their own set of idiosyncrasies and payment packages. Fusion360 is ostensibly free and can design for most of the machines in the space - but there is a lack of in-depth training available. Why not see if an adept member can volunteer some time for a class?

Stanley Black and Decker, Empower Makers Grant Awarded to MakeHaven

Stanley Black & Decker (NYSE: SWK) announced the recipients of its first “Empower Makers” Global Impact Challenge. MakeHaven is honored to have been named as a Makers Grant Recipient for our efforts to provide opportunities for hands-on exploration of career relevant skills.

Roland GS-24 Vinyl Cutter

The Roland GS-24 is a tried and true vinyl cutter. It appears as a printer to the computer, and the print drivers are free and easy to install on both Windows & Mac -- letting members print from their own computers as well (if desired). The software/driver tutorials are also well thought out, documented, and very helpful.

I have personally used this machine at many institutions, and seen it used at even more. It is the Fab Foundation's go-to vinyl cutter in America (at least for what I've seen).
