Join us at the Makerlab to turn ideas into objects. Besides our open hours, or our Free Wednesday prints, you can sign up for a variety of workshops below. If these workshops or the times don’t work for you, you can even request a private event. Our lab is also available for hosting birthday parties. Don't forget to sign up for our Newsletter to stay up to date!
Digital Maker Certificate:
Attend all 4 of our workshops to complete our Digital Maker Certificate! The Digital Maker Certificate is a visible symbol that you possess the knowledge and skills to design, scan, and print 3D objects. In addition, it certifies to others that you are well versed with cutting-edge 3D tools such as 3d printers/scanners, platforms such as Thingiverse.com , and software such as Tinkercad, and Autodesk Fusion 360. A growing number of firms are recognizing the revolutionary potential of 3D printers. Thus, those with 3D printing skills are in high demand! At a more personal level, you will have the satisfaction of knowing that you have the ability to turn your ideas into objects and your objects into ideas!
This certificate is given after completion of Basic 3D Printing, 3D Design with Tinkercad, 3D Design with Fusion 360, and 3D Scanning workshops
This workshop is an introduction into the world of 3D printing. In this workshop our Gurus will provide a brief overview of the MakerLab and 3D printing. Different printing methodologies, as well as their benefits and limitations will also be covered during this session. This session will demonstrate how to operate a 3D printer and how to download, prepare, and print digital files from a digital library (Thingiverse).

This workshop will demonstrate how to operate a basic 3D Design Software package (TinkerCad). Participants in this workshop will use this software to design a customized keychain that can be printed in our lab. The skills learned this workshop can be easily applied to create a wide variety of fun and useful 3D printable objects.
Price : $20
The 3D scanning workshop will provide an overview of how 3D scanning works, the different scanners available in the lab and on campus and a demonstration of how to scan both people and objects. After completing this workshop, participants will be able to create their own 3D photocopies! Each participant gets their free head scan and print(a $15 value) as part of this final workshop and then a certificate.
Price : $20
This workshop will teach you the basics of a more advanced 3D software package (Autodesk Fusion 360). This workshop will teach participants two important modeling skills (free-form modeling and parametric modeling). The skills learned this workshop can be easily applied to create advanced 3D printable objects, such as objects with unique shapes and movable parts.
