MakerSpace is where you can bring your ideas to life. Our makerspaces include 3D printing, 3D Scanning,  lasercutting, woodworking and metal fabrication equipment.

Makerspaces enable students, industry and the community to access rapid fabrication equipment to produce their own  prototypes and design projects.  Equipment access is subject to induction processes and will have to be facilitated in consultation with WSU staff.

Design and fabrication of your custom projects by WSU staff can also be provided where a  part or file is required. We have previously fulfilled projects from product prototyping, art and design projects as well as scientific and medical parts.
