MakerSpace at Alkek One

Dream it, then create it!  The MakerSpace supports additive, subtractive, and smart manufacturing by providing patrons with an array of tools geared towards creativity and innovation, such as 3D printers, laser cutters, and Raspberry Pi boards. These tools can also be used to bring to life projects created in other Alkek One spaces...create a 3D model in the design space, view it in holographic form in the Immersion Studio, then print it using the 3D printers in the MakerSpace!
