#QCmakers: during the pandemic & lockdown we shared a number of online/remote access resources. Below are the best ones & the ones most requested by students. Let us know how else we can advise in your maker pursuits.

LinkedIn Learning have how-to videos for everything from 3D-printing to electronics and more. For instance they have 84 videos alone with the tag ‘TinkerCAD’! And as a #QCmaker you have free and unrestricted access to their database of videos & webinars (by using your @qc.cuny.edu email address).

Design Academy from Autodesk is a great place to explore the world of CAD & CAM. With dozens and dozens of courses to choose from, you can filter them by software, complexity, even career path − from simple, beginner-friendly courses like this Introduction to CAD to Generative Design. 

Rosenthal Library staff have compiled an excellent list of Digital and Streaming Resources available to QC (& CUNY) students during this crisis. Check out the full list here.

One of the best guides around on the subject, “What is 3D printing?” by hubs.com will introduce you to many concepts and workflows to go from idea to material reality.

The QC Makerspace is located in the Benjamin S. Rosenthal Library, Floor 1, Room 101.

Hours for the SPRING’22 semester are:

Please see the area at the top of this page for Spring’22 hours – it varies if you have already received Orientation or not.

We are closed on the weekends.

Inspired by “the maker movement,” our makerspace provides a place to learn new skills as well as a forum for sharing and exchanging ideas with others.

How It Works:

① Request Orientation

Attend a “Safety Guide” Orientation session which grants you access to the makerspace.

Work in the Makerspace

Spend time in the makerspace exploring our resources and equipment.

③ “Make” New Things

Learn new skills and meet your peers along the way!

Our membership is growing each week. To date the following number of Queens College students (and faculty/staff) have undergone Orientation and can consider themselves #QCMakers members!
