Makerspace promotes creativity, an exploratory approach and interdisciplinary collaboration. We offer micro-courses and electives in creative technology subjects. Students and staff at OsloMet can come here to meet and work together, brainstorm ideas and share knowledge.
A Makerspace is a peer-driven workspace filled with tools and innovative technology that allows you to create things in new ways.
Makerspace is a community, where the goal is to work together, learn and share.
Everyone at OsloMet is welcome to use the Makerspace.
If you would like access, register on our Canvas page (oslomet.instructure.com), take the security course and you are good to go.
If you want to use our equipment, we offer certification courses for employees and students. These provide training in the various machinery and must be taken to use the Makerspace. We reserve the right to withdraw the certification if you do not follow our HSE regulations. You can read more about the courses in Canvas.
Individuals can register for courses in the calendar in Canvas and we also organise separate courses for groups and classes. Please contact us directly if interested.
The Epilog laser cutter uses a powerful laser to make precision cuts in a variety of materials, from paper and wood to acrylic and glass. The resolution can be set to up to 1200 DPI, which means it can cut and engrave highly complex and intricate designs.
Makerspace has a wide selection of electrical components and equipment that you can use for prototyping electronics.
We also lend out microcontrollers such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Microbit, as well as sensors and actuators that can, among other things, be used for prototyping IoT projects.
Makerspace has a benchtop milling machine for larger projects, a 4-axis CNC and a smaller 3-axis CNC for electronics and small-scale projects.
We do not have equipment for metalwork, only for softer materials like wood and several types of plastic.
Our wood workshop contains equipment you typically need for woodworking: electric tools, hand tools, a column drilling machine, a mitre saw, thickness planer, benchtop milling machine and lathe.
Makerspace has sewing machines, overlock machines, embroidery machines, various sewing accessories, and a selection of piece goods at your disposal.
We also have a vinyl cutter and digital transfer printer that you can use for textile decoration.
It is important to document your projects, and you can use our photo table with LED lights to photograph products with the right image quality.
We can also lend you a professional camera if you need one. In addition, you can print posters in sizes up to A2 with our poster printer.
Makerspace has simple FDM printers, which often have sufficient mechanical properties for most projects, as well as SLA printers that can be used to create parts with special properties such as high thermal resistance.
