Frequently Asked Questions

What is the cost?

Users are not charged for machine time, training, or consultation. Currently, machine use is on a first-come, first-served basis.

What kinds of projects can I do?

You can work on personal projects, group projects, and class projects within our Makerspaces. You cannot run a business out of the shop.

Who can use the makerspaces?

The Student Innovation Center’s mission is to provide collaborative space for users from all different backgrounds and disciplines. That’s why the Makerspace is open to all Iowa State students, staff, and faculty regardless of major, department, or prior experience.

However, the Makerspace is not available to be checked out for any period by anyone. Professors are welcome to bring their classes into the shop for group training, but classes cannot be held or conducted in the space. Even if professors bring a class in, the shop will remain open for others to use.

I’ve got a great Idea, but where do I start?
