Come for our tools, stay for the community
Members of MechaSpark enjoy access to unparalleled design and fabrication facilities within a creative community – all under one big roof! Of course, there are some limitations. New members should be prepared to join a new member orientation as well as get trained or tested out on our tools before you get to work.
All new members must participate in a new member orientation. Orientations are typically every other Tuesday, from 6-8PM. Fina a date and sign up here.

* Family Membership
Because making can be better with others, we welcome two life partners with (or without!) your well-behaved children. Each family member under 18 must always be accompanied by one or more parent; all tools are to be used by minors under careful parental supervision. Some tools and equipment are strictly off-limits to children under 18 at all times.
** Small Company Membership
Because innovation never rests, MechaSpark offers 24/7 access for two employees and five (5) day passes each month for additional users. Additional employees can be added to the company account at a rate of $130 per employee. Day pass registration fees are waived
Day Pass Packages
Day pass packages are great for short-term projects on your own or working collaboratively in our shops. Each pass is single-use and provides access during staffed hours for 24 hours from the time of redemption. Use of Day Passes requires a one-time $25 sign-up fee. For our current staffed hours, please see the hours and directions page.
*** Please note: New Day Pass users should be prepared to join a new member orientation as well as get trained or tested out on our tools before getting to work in our spaces.
|Day Pass 5-pack||$95||None|
|Day Pass 10-pack||$180||None|
Monthly membership is not required to purchase day passes, and day passes do not grant membership access or benefits. Day pass packages expire 7 years after the purchase date and are non-transferable
