Over the summer, Steely Library turned a former media space into a fully functional makerspace. Stego Studio, located in room 215 on the 2nd floor of Steely Library, provides high-quality prototyping and fabrication equipment in support of project-based learning and research.  

Starting August 23, the makerspace will be open to walk-in users Monday – Friday from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. The space will also be available by appointment – contact the makerspace staff to learn more ( 

Equipment includes:  

  • Two high-end 3D printers (Fusion 3 F410) 
  • Two desktop 3D printers (Lulzbot Mini 2)  
  • A powerful laser cutter/engraver that can print on a variety of materials (Glowforge)  
  • A handheld scanner to create precise scans of large objects (Einscan Pro)  
  • A tabletop scanner to capture smaller objects (SOL 3D Scanner)  
  • Computers and software for use with the printers and scanners  

Not familiar with these technologies yet?

Don’t worry! We invite you to stop by the studio and at our booth at Fresh Fusion to ask any questions you may have.  

Stego Studio staff will be at Fresh Fusion on Saturday, August 21st, from 1:30 - 4:00 p.m. for a live 3D printing demonstration and a chance to take home a 3D printed Stego.
