Select a membership level
A powerful collection of units capable of giving rise to a new individual; List of donors at this level will be featured (separate from Spore level) on our social media and website every month that you donate AND write your name (or business of your choice) on a printed object from our 3D printed demo showcase.

As part of our outreach, we host periodic classes and events around the Northern Alabama area on 3D Printing, to help encourage everyone to begin utilizing 3D Printing in their everyday lives.
Classes:We try to host classes twice a month at various public locations around the Huntsville area to encourage the use of 3D printing. Classes are generally held at one of the Huntsville Madison County Public Libraries.
Events:We periodically host events as part of our mission to connect the community to local 3D Printing Resources. Whether it be inviting local businesses to show off what they do in 3D printing or recycling, or hosting competitions, races, and hackathons related to 3D printing and recycling; we bring people together through events in order to spread awareness about these technologies.
See our Events page for current events.
Free Resources:We’re creating a resource base of knowledge, built by experts within our organization, to provide a free public knowledge base outside of our scheduled classes. We’ve built a Wiki to share our knowledge, and a how-to database for tutorials.
SPORE is an initiative of the non-profit, Mycelium, to share knowledge and resources about 3D printing and recycling with the public.Mycelium is a public charity exempt from income tax under Internal Revenue Code (IRC) Section 501(c)(3). Mycelium develops and distributes machines that enable people to turn product ideas into reality; machines such as self-serve 3D printers, plastic recycling systems, mobile maker spaces and more. By distributing both the scientific resources to turn ideas into reality and the education for how to use those resources, Mycelium hopes to empower impoverished communities to begin producing locally.
