The Makerspace is one of the shops that makes part of the Making Studio. It is divided into two sections, one with monitored usage of lasercutters and 3D printers, and the other functioning as a 24-hour project space available to active students. This portion of the Making Studio addresses the smaller scale of fabrication that requires a different work environment than the shop.
