Library MakerSpace


The Library MakerSpace is a flexible experimentation and innovation space that provides access to the latest tools used in research, instruction and knowledge creation, including 3D printing tools, custom virtual reality workstations, software and data skill development and microelectronics kits. The Library MakerSpace can be found on the main floor of the Bizzell Memorial Library (Room 126).

All of the resources of the Library MakerSpace are available to the OU community. 3D Printing is available along with VR. Please note that printing requests will only be taken in person, not via email or over the phone.

3D Printers

3D Printer

3D printers are available at the Library MakerSpace or at Research 3D printing. 3D printers are rapid prototyping technology that enable users to take 3D models and designs and translate them into physical objects. They're being used for a wide array of applications beyond just industrial prototyping. They open up a wide array of possibilities from one-off parts to iterative design, engineering, and artistic expression. The Library MakerSpace offers a variety of 3D printers which use low-cost PLA filament, enabling patrons to explore and test the possibilities of the technology. The Library MakerSpace offers 3D workshop for hands on training. Workshops are listed on the libraries Events calendar.

Virtual Reality Headsets
