3D scanners enable you to take a physical object, scan it into a digital format (e.g. the STL file format), and work with the digitized model to create prototypes that are then printed by 3D printers. Once you have a 3D file, send it to us and we'll print it!

The equipment in the iCube fall into 3 usage categories:

  • Green = can be used without supervision for DIY projects
  • Yellow= Please use during staffed hours assistance with set-up
  • Red = requires an appointment with a staff member

The iCube makerspace is where the Novi community can come together to explore, play, create, and share their skills and talents. We strive to foster not just creativity but also collaboration and community ties, and so we are looking for enthusiastic and dedicated volunteers to help make the iCube a vital and vibrant space.

As a member of our Talent Team you can share a skill or interest. Some examples are digital media creation, textiles and fiber arts, sewing & quilting, woodworking, paper-crafts, fine art-making, as well as daily-life skills like sewing zippers and hems or attaching a button, fixing a bike tire, or re-wiring a lamp. If you are interested in joining our Talent Team, contact us at icube@novilibrary.org.
