About Us

Orlando's newest Makerspace is open in South Orlando! We are located at 8600 Commodity Cir #158, Orlando, FL 32819. Google Directions to MakerFX.

MakerFX Makerspace is a program of The Maker Effect Foundation. The Maker Effect foundation also produces Maker Faire Orlando.

This wiki is a knowledge base for the resources and tools a MakerFX. MakerFX members have 24 hour 7 days per week access to an amazing and growing list of resources and tools.

This wiki needs your help. If you can spend a little time documenting some part of what we do, we can help you get setup and able to edit. Every little bit helps! Pop into the #mfx-wiki channel on slack, or ask Ian, Jeff, Joe or Neil, to help you get an account.

Projects and Exhibits

Things we've built for Maker Faire or other events that aren't documented elsewhere

  • Bullet Time Camera - A photo booth with 24 Raspberry Pi computers & cameras combine to create animated 360 images of people at events
  • Flaming Daisy - an 8? foot tall metal daisy made from recycled car parts that shoots flame. Fire Art is Awesome!
  • Wall of Text - A wall of LED signs that can display text (and hopefully images someday!) at events.
  • Pay Phone - An interactive pay phone for the MFX lobby
