What is the Makerspace?
Our makerspace is a room on the first floor of the Mudd Library where all members of the Lawrence University Community are welcome to use a bunch of cool equipment to make things! We especially encourage faculty and students to use the space and equipment in their courses and academic work.
What's in the Makerspace
Thanks to a generous grant from the Associated Colleges of the Midwest, the makerspace has two Ultimaker 2+ 3D printers, one Ultimaker 3 3D printer, and two 3D scanners. The makerspace also includes a standard sewing machine, a heavy duty sewing machine, a Silhouette Cameo electronic cutter, painting supplies, laminator (up to 8 1/2" X 11" paper), a soldering station, and a Glowforge laser cutter.
Additional Services in the Makerspace
