I'm new but have visited once or twice.  I'd like to see Spokane Create succeed and prosper.  As a makerspace newbie I am always looking for new resources.  I thought I would list some of the things I have found:

-Spokane Public Library has an Internet of Things collection for loan which has some useful items.  They also offer a free 3d printing service which just requires an .stl file and they print it and send it to a branch.  They said their focus in the future would be on a software studio rather than hardware space.  There are a lot of libraries building makerspaces though.

-http://opendesk.cc  offers free furniture .dxf's for the CNC router.

 -http://www.maslowcnc.com offers a $500 vertical CNC router kit.  http://www.maslowcnc.com/plypad describes their CNC cut tiny house project with free plans available.  This is a great idea for helping the homeless.

-https://www.vicious1.com has info and .stl's for printing mostly printed CNC and 3d printers

-http://onshape.com offers free online CAD

-http://enablingthefuture.org  has files and help to 3d print hands for youth  without hands

-https://www.pcc.edu/maker/  Portland Community College's makerspace.  I consider this as a possible model for local schools.

I'd like to read others suggestions for resources, especially local.

Forgot the address for library's 3d printer:


We print on a Lulzbot Taz5

The Print Area of the Taz5 is 290mm x 275mm x 250mm (11.4in x 10.8in x 9.8in).

Riverpoint Academy has a pretty good makerspace environment and a lot of talented people.
