About the Maker Space

 The Maker Space is a student-driven fabrication shop with capabilities ranging from 3D printing up to CNC machining and is open to all Faculty of Science undergraduate and graduate students who wish to learn the design and fabrication skills necessary to make scientific equipment.

Student training is offered at no charge. Any student or faculty member who is interested in training may request an initial training appointment using the Request Training form linked below.

The Maker Space also serves the fabrication needs of researchers. We have a large range of graduate and undergraduate students printing items for their research groups. Students who operate the Maker Space will also print items for research groups on a case-by-case basis as time permits.

Location and hours

We are located in Room 112, Allen Building.

Summer 2023 opening hours:
Monday 10 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.

Request training

Please fill out the form below. You will be contacted by a representative of the Maker Space to arrange a training session.


Fabrication consultation

Do you want to make something but do not have time to be trained? You may submit an inquiry about your fabrication project to ask about its feasibility, expected time frame to completion and anticipated cost.

Please include what kind of material you would like to use and pertinent details about the project (e.g. the environment the item will be used in, expected strain, etc.) that may influence how it needs to be made.

Note that if you operate a research group or some other organization involving students it is more cost-effective and valuable to have students trained at the Maker Space to produce items for your research group. All students and groups are welcome to submit a training request.
