  • Weekly training on digital design software is now offered in our new Project Room on Saturday mornings. The sessions are followed by hands-on time in the MakerSpace to demonstrate what's been learned. Look at the "Training Courses" tab on the left side of the page.
  • Prof. Tim Schuler organized a short course for faculty who want to use the MakerSpace. Tulane News captured Maker Ninja Kaleb Branch helping the participants learn to use the laser cutter.
  • Our Make48 team, featured in The New Orleans Advocate and in this Tulane News story, is back from the competition in Baltimore. The TV show won't air until Fall 2019, so we can't say how they placed, but they are proud of their accomplishments. They're featured in this video promo.

  • Tulane has been chosen as one of 12 schools participating in the Make48 College Challenge. Team members were announced on April 11. They are Luke Artzt (JR ENGP), Matthew Nice (SR BMEN), Kyra Rubinstein (FR BMEN) and Jesse Williams (SR ARCH). They will compete in Baltimore in mid-August

  • To help K-12 schools in the region grow their MakerSpaces, we're leading an effort bring teachers together starting with Tulane's.
  • We have yet another new 3D printer. This one's a Monoprice IIIP Mini Delta. For $160, the print quality is quite good. It uses a special version of Cura, available on the computer next to the Carvey. Here's the manual
  • Riptide and President Fitts visited the MakerSpace to present the President's Award for Team Excellence to the MakerSpace Leadership Team.
  • The Annual Report of the School of Science and Engineering featured two stories about generous donors to the MakerSpace.
  • Our new 3D printer, a Prusa MK3 has arrived and it's set up to run. Instead of Cura, use PrusaControl on the PC next to the Carvey. Build volume is z=9.84" x=8.3" y=8.3" and the manual is here
  • The MakerSpace is featured in the launch for Tulane's $1.3B fund raising campaign. Chase Schober, one of our Ninjas, is seen in the video and the web site mentions the NASA team in the MakerSpace.
  • A new video, featuring Maker Ninja Antonius Prader, was produced by the Office of Admission. Shout-out to Justin Baris for organizing this.
  • We have purchased a Carvey and a Formlabs SLA printer. Both are available to users with Digital-2_Training credentials.
  • A 30-second video, featuring the NASA team, was filmed in the MakerSpace.
  • The Tulane MakerSpace was recently featured as part of a tour for the Board of Tulane. The tour was well-received and many board members enjoyed discussing projects and tools with Chase Schober and Olivia Michael.
  • We have upgraded our 3d printing equipment and filaments, and can now report that (almost) all of our 3d printers are reliably creating beautiful prints and we haven't had a failed print in well over a month of heavy use.
  • The 2017 Maker of the Year Awards were announced on April 18. The winners of cash prizes are Chase Schober and Rae Mills. Scroll down to see their winning submissions.

  • And while you have a YouTube window open, check out the video of Tulane University's 2016/17 grand prize winning team submission to NASA's BIG Idea Challenge MakerSpace users designed and built a scale prototype for a modular spacecraft intended to ferry cargo spacecraft from Low Earth Orbit (LEO) To Lunar-Distant Retrograde Orbit (LDRO). MakerSpace Advisor Prof. Schuler was the team's mentor.
