The Digital Media Lab has become The Makery.

After watching the Digital Media Lab grow over the last 3 years, it has evolved into more than just a digital space. We have electronic experimentation kits, a 3D printer, and soon we’ll have sewing machines. Since the space has turned into more of a makerspace, we’ve decided to rename it. Look for The Makery by name and the logo below when searching for events like 3D Printing Club and Tech Specs.
We will begin charging for print jobs that use the Large Format Printer effective September 1. The charge will be $2 per linear foot.
For example, a 24 x 36 inch poster would cost $6. Printing operation will be the same as our other public printers.
