The Makerspace is a place, where all ETH Students (bachelor, master and doctorate) can work on self-initiated projects and perform most types of standard prototyping.


Our talented Makerspace Managers are here to help you with questions during the Makerspace Opening Hours.


Our only restriction is that if your institute already gives you access to a workshop for your course (such as Architecture models or the Innovation project in D-MAVT), or if you think of fabricating for a commercial purpose (small-series production), then our space might not be the best fit. Email us with any questions you might have.

Getting started in the Makerspace is easy!


STEP 1: General Introduction
A short general introduction is mandatory to use the Makerspace. Just come by during the opening hours and ask a Makerspace Manager for it.


STEP 2: Machine Introductions
To use more complex machines (3D-Printers, Lasercutters, Drill Press, Bandsaw) you need a specific machine introduction. They are scheduled just before the Makerspace opening hours. You can also ask for it during the opening hours, but we can’t guarantee that the Makerspace Manager will have time to do it.


For further questions, just send us an email.
