Maker Bar

About the Maker Bar

Welcome to the Maker Bar, a library space for hands-on tinkering and prototyping, open to all Stanford students, faculty, and staff. We have fabrication equipment available to use within the library. All our Mobile Maker Cart items are also available for check out so you can tinker wherever and whenever you prefer. Need assistance? Our Maker Bar Team is available for support and consultation. 


Check out a 3D printer!

All our Mobile Maker Cart items are available for check out. This includes some of our 3D printers, electronics, and other maker tools. These items can easily fit into the trunk of a car, and we have hand carts available to help you transport these back to your workspace.
