Where can I find out more about events at MakerSpace?

You can follow us on FacebookTwitter, and Instagram for the latest updates or sign up for our newsletter to stay up to date on the MakerSpace community.

Is MakerSpace open to people outside of NYU?

The equipment may only be used by current NYU students, faculty, and staff. Some events that we conduct in the space are be open to the public.

I would like to learn the more advanced machines such as the Objet30 in the facility but I don’t see any video guides or a training calendar for it, will I still be able to learn that machine?

Some of the machines in the MakerSpace require special training. If there is a machine in the MakerSpace that you wish to use but cannot find training videos on our NYU Stream, please email tandon-makerspace@nyu.edu with your intended use of the machine and to schedule a training for the machine. 

If no one is at the front desk, who can I also ask for help?

The MakerSpace has three different TA stations: the front desk, a table by the Ultimaker 3D printers, and the tools station. If you are coming into the space, you must wait for a TA at the front desk to check you in to maintain a safe user density. After that, you may ask any of the TAs in the MakerSpace for help. 

How much does it cost to use the MakerSpace?

The MakerSpace is free for all users, but there are some costs for certain materials. The MakerSpace also has areas for scrap material, but we cannot guarantee the quantity or quality of scraps. If you have a project idea, please apply to the Prototyping Fund or Mini Grant!

I cannot make any of the in-person check in times. How can I finish my training?

If you cannot make any of the times available to reserve an in-person check in feel free to reach out to us, but please check the training calendars often as times will change throughout the semester.

How do I get started?

The MakerSpace is open to all NYU students, staff, and faculty. For the Fall 2020 semester, all users coming into the space must first watch the MakerSpace COVID-19 Policies Video. Once completed, you can reserve a workspace, such as a table or a desktop computer.  If you are looking to use a machine, you must first have completed the safety orientation, and then the training for the machine that you wish to use. You can find all of our trainings and reservations here. If you are remote for Fall 2020, you may virtually join our workshops. Keep a lookout for them here.

I have never been to the MakerSpace before, what is it?

The MakerSpace is located at 6 Metrotech Center, RM 118, Brooklyn NY inside New York University’s Tandon School of Engineering. It is a prototyping lab with equipment and tools available for all NYU students, staff, and faculty only. You can find more information about the machines we have in the space here. Our programming arm, the DeisgnLab, also offers workshops to learn new skills and hosts events with industry leaders and guest speakers.
