The USQ Makerspace is a community space for hands-on making with new digital fabrication technologies and traditional crafts. The Makerspace can be used for class projects, student clubs, personal projects and hardware prototyping. Currently, the Makerspace has a 3D Printer, 3D scanner, soldering station, a badge maker, hand tooling, craft materials and much more.
The Toowoomba Makerspace has moved to R302 during the R Block renovations and is open from 10AM -2PM on weekdays during Semester 3. The Makerspace is limited to five people at a time during library opening hours. 3D printing, 3D scanning and craft equipment are available. All Makerspace workshops will be held online. See the Library events page for more information.
