About YLab

We are York Region’s first maker space. We’re all volunteer, non-profit and member supported, with a wide variety of interests. We’ve been operating our maker space in the basement of the historic David Dunlap Observatory administration building in Richmond Hill.

A brief summary of some of the information you’ll probably want to know if you’re interested in joining our space. For more details, visit the about us page.

More About What We Do

We host tech talks, classes and seminars at the DDO and in other location. Most importantly, we work on projects and help each other. It gets better every week.

We welcome anyone who interested in software, Arduino, 3D Printing, laser cutting, robot making and toy hacking, amateur radio and whatever else we can think of.

Our Equipment

Please note that our equipment is YLab owned or lended to us by members, so we regularly add new gear.
  • Laser Cutter with a 24″ x 36″ bed
  • 3D Printers (PLA and ABS filaments)
  • Oscilloscopes
  • Soldering Tools
  • Amateur Radio Gear
  • & More!
