Makerspace at Pitt MAC Creates Opportunity For Community Involvement

Last week, the University of Pittsburgh celebrated the launch of a new makerspace at its Manufacturing Assistance Center in Homewood with a small ceremony.

The facility will feature tools including a 3D printer and woodworking equipment and host a series of instructional workshops on different “making” techniques.

"The makerspace helps entrepreneurs design products, develop products, prototype products and begin to manufacture them in small batches," said Bopaya Bidanda, chair of the industrial engineering department at Pitt and the center’s director.
