Service Update 05/01/21

The uCreate Studio is operating a reduced service while Scotland is in national lockdown. The following service alterations and restrictions are currently in place:

  • On site 3D and large format document scanning are currently suspended.
  • 3D Print Queue and Collect is restricted to activities related to your studies.
  • Equipment Loans are restricted to activities related to your studies.

Please only book a drop in for 3D printing or equipment collection if the activities are essential to your research, learning or teaching.

Makerspace staff remain available for online training, advice and support for anyone in the University of Edinburgh community. Please don't hesitate to get in touch if we can help with your project.

We're awaiting further guidance and anticipate adjustments to the service in the coming days. Any changes to our service provision will be shared via our website and social media channels.

We look forward to welcoming you all back to the Makerspace as soon as it is safe to do so.
