Maker Row

Maker Row is the campus home for design ideation and prototype development. There are four contiguously located component facilities.

  • The Scot Ackerman MakerSpace is the centerpiece of Maker Row. With 4100 ft2 of space as described here, it is the nexus for creative designers and makers from across the campus. Space renovation was completed in 2015-16.
  • The Architecture Millhaus CNC shop has a numerically controlled router operating in a 48” x 96” x 12” volume. It is used to build precise wood and foam structures, under the supervision of Architecture faculty.
  • The wood prototype shop, contiguous to the Scot Ackerman MakerSpace, has a full complement of hand and power woodworking tools. Access to power - tools is available to Scot Ackerman MakerSpace users who have completed wood shop safety training.
  • The Project Room is adjacent to the wood shop and Millhaus CNC shop. Benches and project storage space, as well as a classroom and training area, are available for both research and personal projects. A Bridgeport vertical mill and Clausing lathe are available for demonstrations and supervised use
