The Brooks MakerSpace is a cutting edge facility, filled with the latest technologies, available for everyone to use. 

What is a MakerSpace? It is traditionally defined as a place in which people with shared interests, especially in computing or technology, can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge. To put it simply a MakerSpace is a place where anyone is free to make virtually anything.

Programming

With our professional grade suite, we have coding tools for all levels of expertise. From SQL to C++, JavaScript to Swift, we've got all the bells and whistles. Just learning? Try our Scratch ecosystem!

Custom modelling and rendering.

 

A fascinating start of graphic design is emerging on the global stage. 3D modelling is used in the film, game, and advertising industry. Textures, colours, and other manipulative are involved, making 3D modelling the science of the arts. When finished designing, 3D printers are available to make the model a tangible reality. Or render it, to get picture perfect images for display. Using state of the art software, Blender, we rendered these complex car models. Using only a computer, we created highly realistic images. See for yourself!
