Blueprint is the City Library Makerspace where anyone can learn how to create and share whatever their imagination can conjure using the latest in fabrication technology, design software and creative tools.
Our resources include sewing equipment, 3D printers, laser cutter, CNC routers, vinyl cutters, a heat press, and more. Visit us during opening hours to find out how we might help bring your project ideas to life. If you're interested, you can book an introduction to the space, or send us an email with your enquiry.
At present, bookings are not required to use the equipment at Blueprint. However, if you'd like to guarantee a particular time on our CNC router or laser cutters you can book a session in advance. You can also submit 3D print requests using our online form.
Resources available at Blueprint
We have several FFF (Fused Filament Fabrication) 3D printers, including Ultimaker and Prusa printers, plus SLA resin printers for models needing fine detail.
We have sewing machines that anyone in the community can use. Bring your fabric and thread along.
Cut and engrave different materials such as wood & acrylic up to 9 mm thick. We can also cut soft materials such as cardboard, leather, or felt.
Blueprint Software & Computers
We have Windows and Mac computers with 2D and 3D design software installed.
