MakerSpaceUSNA open for Spring AY20!

Welcome back everyone! MakerSpaceUSNA is back up and running. During the break we made a few improvements and restocked some consumables, but overall there are no major changes. The only changes we expect this semester is the addition of 1 (maybe 2) Ultimaker S5(s) with a new materials handling station that we will discuss when it arrives.


Spring AY20 will be a VERY BUSY semester as we are supporting 4 sections of an AM elective class (EM486A and EA486F) as well as numerous Capstone and individual research projects so please work with others in the MakerSpace.


We are already looking for Summer 2020 support so if you are a graduating MIDN, will be TAD to USNA following graduation, and are interested, we could really use the help. Last Summer we made a lot of major changes and we expect to do the same this Summer.


As always Happy Printing!
