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.
Music enthusiast and maker, John Lake, developed and prototyped his custom speakers – he also builds incredible turntables – through the MIDAS Fab Lab. A beautiful combination of form, function and exceptional sound quality.
“I’ve been involved with Midas since its inception both as a volunteer and participant.As a volunteer, I am happy to pass on whatever skills and knowledge I’ve amassedover my working career but I’m equally pleased to be able to use the Midas equipmentto make my own projects happen.It’s brilliant to be able to go to a local shop where all types of machinesand tech equipment is available to help a person complete projects that may otherwise be difficultif not impossible for the average person. Midas has a very important place in our community.”
