MAKE

Enter. Imagine. Create. From video and music production to virtual reality, 3D printing, jewelry making, and more. Bring your visions to life in the Maker Space!
(Located on the 2nd floor.)

The Maker Space maintains two Prusa i3 MK3 3D printers and one Taz 5 3D printer for public use. Our printers use the .stl file format for 3D models. You can download model files from popular 3D communities such as Thingiverse and Yeggi or you can create a model yourself from scratch with free programs like Tinkercad and SketchUp. The cost to print a 3D model is $0.10 per gram of PLA plastic.
