MAKERSPACE

A student-run space with tools and machines for all your self-started projects and prototyping needs. All ETH students – bachelor, master and doctorate – are welcome.

Getting Started is Easy

GENERAL INTRODUCTIONS

A short General Introduction is mandatory to use the Makerspace. Just come by during the Open Hour at 4:30PM or 6:30PM and ask one of our Makerspace Managers. Remember, Open Hours could change on a weekly basis, so make sure to check timings before heading over.

MACHINE INTRODUCTIONS

To use complex machines (3D-Printers, Laser cutters, etc.) you will need a short machine-specific introduction, usually scheduled right before the Makerspace opens. Book a slot below.

WORKSHOPS (OPTIONAL)

Our fantastic Makerspace team conducts workshops specially for makers, or to teach you specific skills. Please check in on the bookings section below from time to time so you don’t miss a valuable session.
