Inductions and Access MSD

Like the rest of the campus, the MSD Maker Spaces are CLOSED to all students and staff regardless of induction access level, with the exception of ExLab ABPL90222.

All Spaces will be offering bureau services to support students engage with the Machine Workshop, Fab Lab and NExT Lab in Semester 2, 2020. You can submit a bureau job at any time through either the Fab Lab or NExT Lab Job Submission Portals, and it will be processed by the technicians and delivered contact-free to your home on completion.

The MSD Maker Spaces are advanced facilities which requires students and staff to undergo certain training before they can access the services and facilities. Safe usage of the facilities is a top priority, and most of the fabrication services available require at least some specialised knowledge to engage with effectively.
