i3Detroit Public Open House March 24, 2018 * 10-4 pm Open and Free to everyone! Come on by and learn what a makerspace is and how we operate i3Detroit 1481A Wordsworth St Ferndale, MI 48220 i3Detroit.org firstname.lastname@example.org
Ever dream of a place where you could build and craft your heart’s desires?
A place to find other Do-It-Yourself-ers and get tips and advice?
A place where you could learn to use and have access to tools that would never fit into your garage or your budget?
That place exists, today. Welcome to i3Detroit.
Here at i3Detroit, we want to create and build, probably much like yourself. We’re not a profit-driven tool rental center, we’ve got a burning passion to create, tinker, hack and make, one that drives us to create the best possible community and space. Our members take pride in what we’ve built, and for good reason. We’ve got such a diverse range of things to create with here, and we’ve done it all as a highly-engaged volunteer community with a passion for things such as crafting, woodworking, metalworking, electronics, welding, programming, and digital fabrication!
Located near the heart of Ferndale, we’re close to many local events and an amazing community. If you’re curious about, or never heard of a Makerspace, then swing on by on a Friday evening (6:00 to 9:00 PM) to take a tour and get to know the membership!
Excited? Gotten this far? Come see us! You’ll find this is just the place you’ve been looking for!
See you soon!

i3 Detroit prides itself on being an open community, but that doesn’t mean anyone can just walk in, hand over $49, and get a key. We like all of our members to come check the space out and meet a few of the members before becoming a part of the community. Our signup process requires prospective members to get familiar with a community-run organization before joining.

We recently had to replace the hinges on one of the laser cutters. There aren’t any hinges out there that seemed to have the right hole spacing, so I ordered some heavy duty hinges without pre-punched holes, thinking I could just drill them where needed. But how to layout the hole pattern and make sure […]
i3detroit’s two laser cutters are the most used large tools in all of our makerspace. The things you can make with computer controlled sheet stock cutting (wood, plastic, cardboard, cloth) is limited only by your imagination.
