Makerspace Hours and Availability

The Architecture Library Makerspace is generally staffed Monday - Friday from 9:00a to 5:00p and Sunday - Thursday from 7:00-9:00p. It is advised that you make an appointment to ensure staff availability. 

The Makerspace is staffed by students in the evening hours. 

3D Printing

The Architecture Library houses multiple 3D printers, including a MakerBot Z18, two Creality CR10-S4s, and a Rostock Max which are available for student use. Priority for printing will be given to class projects for students in the School of Architecture, though the printers are open to the larger Notre Dame community. Please contact us for more information. 

Patrons are strongly advised to submit their files at least 5 business days in advance of important deadlines.

  • Production timeframe may vary depending upon such factors as the object's printer file itself, staff and device availability, and/or unexpected device or material issues that may arise. 
  • Generally, objects are printed on a first-come, first-serve basis; however, priority will be given to student printing objects related to graded assignments for a course in which they are currently enrolled.
