SYN Shop

SYN Shop

The Las Vegas Valley's first and largest Maker/Hackerspace. Come and make things with like minded people: in a workshop full of awesome tools

Mission: SYN Shop is a Las Vegas based makerspace (DIY) for those who like to create and modify things made with electronics, software, wood, plastic, metal, cloth and other materials. Our mission is to foster a community of makers by providing a creative and educational environment consisting of people, equipment and space that supports innovation, collaboration and personal growth. Modern software, the Internet and economies of scale have all come together to allow ordinary people with a little bit of know-how to blur the lines between manufacturer and consumer. Let us show you how.

Our 3D printing filaments are restocked with all the colors of the rainbow. 🌈
Thanks to a generous donation, we added a huge variety of colors and materials for our members to come experiment with.
What will you create?

Sign up for the 101 class tomorrow!

Tonight at 6PM
