MIDAS makes recent advances in manufacturing technology, which includes 3D Printing, accessible to West Kootenay companies, entrepreneurs and students.
This is #madeatMIDAS where we showcase the variety of incredible applications possible with products created here at the MIDAS fabrication lab.
MIDAS supports the expansion and development of local small and medium-sized companies’ strengths in collaborating, adopting technology, and creating new and marketable products while promoting skills training opportunities in digital fabrication and metallurgical technology for entrepreneurs, company personnel and students.
Fernie’s Cory Hein, formerly an Engineer with Teck, has created a novel storage system for homes and condos through the MIDAS Fab Lab. He’s holding his idea and his prototype close to the vest, but had this to say about his experience with MIDAS.
“My experience at MIDAS was awesome! Brad was extremely helpful with running equipment and training. Having all of the materials there was a huge bonus since I had to travel from Fernie. It was really cool to see that the Tech club was integrated so kids in the area are learning.
It opens up a lot of possibilities for designing my different ideas.”
