The M. Louis Salmon Library Makerspace is a place to collaborate, create, learn, and explore. It combines equipment, tools, and space for you to work on physical projects. This is not a computer lab; rather, it’s an area to print, build, finish, and otherwise bring your work to life. Need to paint a landscape for class? Want a real life version of your CAD model? Have a design you’d like as a poster? Like to make a prototype of your product idea? This is the place for UAH students, faculty, and staff to do that and more.

Currently the Makerspace has two LulzBot Taz 6 3D Printers and four Prusa i3 MK3 3D Printers, as well as a HP Designjet Z3200ps Poster Printer. We have a Cricut Maker 3 and a Brother SE600 Sewing/Embroidery machine. There is a EinScan SE 3D Scanner if you wish to scan in a physical option for your projects. We also have an assortment of tools, or you can bring your own. There are several tables to work, study, and hang out.

Additionally, we now have a Glowforge laser printer capable of cutting and engraving a variety of materials. Simply create your design and bring in a material from our approved materials list to get started! Additional information, including a list of approved materials, may be found on the dedicated LibGuide under the "Glowforge" section.

In the future, we plan to add additional equipment, so let us know what you’d like to see next!

To see more information about any of our equipment, see the Makerspace Libguide.
