If you don’t have hands on experience with the equipment you need to take a workshop for it first.

Makerspace is getting busy, so please book time on a specific piece of equipment for a specific time and day. All of the signup sheets are on a tack board on the outside of the Makerspace, room A268.

The 3D printers are booked by the day (1 slot per day per person max) and the lasers are booked in 1/2hr chunks. (Max 2 slots per day).

All of our filament 3D printers use PLA filament. This is a corn based filament.

We now have the following materials available for the Form2 printers:

  • Standard White 
  • Pro Grey
  • Tough
  • Flexible
  • Elastic

Makerspace is free to use, including no charge for using the 3D printers. For the laser cutters, you just need to bring your own materials.
