The uCreate Makerspace is The University of Edinburgh's biggest community makerspace which is open to all staff and students completely free of charge. We offer equipment, advice, training, and support to help you make (almost) anything.

What is a makerspace?

A makerspace is a place in which people with shared interests, especially in computing or technology, can gather to work on projects while sharing ideas, equipment, and knowledge.

What does the makerspace offer?

Equipment wise the makerspace has 3D printers, laser cutting, CNC milling, virtual reality headsets, 3D scanners, electronics and much more in the space or even available for loan. But we also offer supported self service in the form of training and guidance in using all of our equipment, even for complete beginners.
