The I&RC MakerSpace

The I&RC MakerSpace is an interdisciplinary hands-on workshop that combines digital and analog technologies. A place for turning concepts into objects using 3D printers and other production tools.

Our hours of operation are Monday-Friday 9:00 AM-5:00 PM.

The MakerSpace is not open to the public just yet, but its 3D printing and laser cutting services are available via request to the AU community.  Fill out the MakerSpace Intake Form to submit a job request.  Review the 3D Plans Libguide for help locating ready made online 3D printing plans. 

The MakerSpace also now has the ability to work directly with classes to support course assignments. Complete the form  to request an instructional session and/or I&RC tour for your class. For all other questions, email
