The Digital Scholarship Center Makerspace offers space, equipment, and support for collaborative and critical making for academic and personal projects. Open to all Temple University community members, we encourage learning and experimentation through hands-on making and tinkering. No experience is necessary, though an equipment safety training must be completed before using the 3D printers, laser cutter, and Arduino/Rasberry Pi equipment. To schedule a training session or reserve a piece of equipment, email the DSC or drop by during open hours.  To view laser cutter and 3D printer availability, see the equipment schedule below.

Small material/equipment fees apply for 3D printing and laser cutting. For more information, check out our user agreements for our 3D printers, laser cutter, and Arduino/Rasberry Pi workbench.
