MakerSpace pano.jpg.JPG

A MakerSpace has been described as new amalgam of art, craft, and technology. Our goal is to serve all makers, and potential makers, in the Tulane Community[1]. We do so by providing tools, assistance, and ideas. Commercial use of the MakerSpace is not allowed. We provide 3d printer filament and laser plywood for academic and personal use projects. If in doubt, questions about interpretation should be directed to the Maker-In-Chief or a Director before a project is started.
