Make a Makerspace Tips

Found some great tips to consider when creating a makerspace from Make:

Considerations

  • Design, Fabrication or Both? How you plan to use the space will determine your spatial flow.
  • Dirty vs Clean? Separate dirty from clean equipment if possible. If not, consider alternative equipment options.
  • Noise Control? It’s easy to minimize noise disruptions with a little planning in advance.
  • Power & Electrical Requirements? Read equipment datasheets in detail to understand power requirements. Finalize your lab layout after working with an electrician.
  • Furniture? Consider furniture with the right storage options and durability to fit your needs.
  • Designing for Mobility? Mobile furniture and equipment offers an entirely new level of customization.
