Welcome to MakerSpace USNA

Design, Build, Perform

MakerSpace USNA is a 3D printing laboratory space at the United States Naval Academy providing 3D printing capability for classroom and laboratory instruction as well as project support for students, faculty, and staff at USNA.

MakerSpace USNA is a (1) modern, (2) open, (3) student oriented, and (4) adaptable design space where students can design, build, and evaluate engineering projects within Engineering and Weapons Division at USNA.

Starting Spring AY22 MakerSpaceUSNA will be using a new
MakerSpaceUSNA Qualification Program

All student users must complete Beginner, Advanced, and Expert Level Qualifications

Everything needed for Qualification can be found on our YouTube Channel

Or you can start with our Qualification Card from this website.  Good luck!

Happy early Holidays from the MakerSpace and with only 1 week left in the Fall semester, we have to put a pause on qualifications for this semester. There are many Capstone and independent research projects that still have major work to do for the semester, and we need time to shutdown and get setup for the Spring before the start of the Holiday break.

So if you have not already qualified, I am going to have to ask you to wait until the Spring and even if you have qualified we are asking all users to hold off on all non-critical printing until the Spring semester. As always our priorities are: supporting AM related classes, supporting AM related Capstone projects, and then supporting AM related student research projects.

It has been a good - and busy - semester. Hopefully you have learned about 3D printing/additive manufacturing and had some fun at the same time. I do have a few favors to ask in return:

(1) Please acknowledge support from the MakerSpace when/where you can. There is a link to all of our logos on the desktop of every user on the PCs in the MakerSpace. Putting these on your posters/reports/etc. really helps spread the word. We REALLY need your support so that we can support future students.

(2) Please be mindful of resources you use in the MakerSpace. Nothing in the MakerSpace is truly "free" and some projects have used perhaps more than their fair share of resources. Bottom line, just be responsible.

(3) Please continue to clean up after yourself and even better, leave the MakerSpace in better shape than when you came in

(4) Final point, please consider following us on social media. It is never about likes or follows, but the more the word spreads, the more we can do to support everyone.

Attached are just a few cool photos from recent things in the MakerSpace.
