What is it?
The MakerSpace in the library is a space where students can be creative, collaborate, share, develop ideas, innovate, and generally just ‘make stuff’. The space is available for staff and students to use at any time while the library is open. There is no need to book the space if you are using it for either individual or group work. Just drop in!
Our PCs have a higher specification than those available in most of the PC suites on campus. We have included Autodesk Inventor®, Adobe creative suite (Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver etc.), Sketchup Pro, Anime Studio Pro, Blender, Clip Studio Paint, and Cura.
Open to both staff and students of NUI Galway. We print in PLA (and resin by request) and have three 3D printers in use: Ultimaker 2, Ultimaker 2 Extended, and Form2. Learn how to use the free service and submit a design for printing here.
We also offer free equipment borrowing including drones, VR headsets, camera equipment, Raspberry Pis, Arduinos and more. Equipment can be collected from and returned to the Library & IT Service Desk. View the equipment page to see items and availability.
