uCreate Studio – Amazing successes and interesting fails

Yesterday Charlie and I paid a visit to uCreate Studio, the University of Edinburgh’s community maker space, to talk about how the OER Service can help to promote some of the amazing creative outputs being produced by the staff and students using the studio.  The team at uCreate, led by Mike Boyd, offer equipment, advice, training, and support to help you make (almost) anything.  Based in the main Library, the studio provides free access to a wide range of tools and equipment including 3D printing and scanning, die cutting, vacuum forming, CNC milling and much more.  Some of the models and projects being created by staff and students using the studio are already being shared in online maker community repositories such as Thingiverse and Sketchfab and we hope we’ll be able to work with Mike and his team to share some of these creative outputs through the OER Service.   It was great to see all the amazing things going on in the studio, I particularly liked the Showcase of Amazing Successes and Interesting Fails and I would love to have a go of the CNC mill :}
