Prototype Space

The IDEA Center’s Prototype Space, or “maker space,” will be equipped to facilitate prototype development, model construction and light manufacturing. It will support new ventures and other local small businesses on a rental basis.

The initial plan calls for individual work benches that can be rented on a daily, weekly or monthly basis, with offices for staff to teach operational safety and to oversee daily operations.

Tool capabilities planned include large format printing, 3D modeling, small scale metal/wood/plastic cutting and forming, basic electrical, and a small paint booth.
