The Pirate Studios at Smith Library are makerspaces to gather, create, invent and learn. They are open to all SU students, faculty and staff.
3D Print Studio: Fabricate your own objects using the Airwolf 3D HD2x printer and high resolution FormLabs Form 2 printer.
Audio Studio: Record a podcast, interview, oral history or voice-over.
Media Lab [Sandbox]: Write code, build 3D models, or edit and mix audio and video.
Video Studio: Light and shoot video using the green screen or interview sets.
In the 3D Print Studio makerspace, you oversee the entire printing process, from preparing the printer, adjusting the settings, and fixing any issues that might arise in real-time while your object is being made.
The Media Lab [Sandbox] has applications for 3D modeling and video and audio post-production, including the full Adobe Creative Cloud suite.
The Media Lab also has an AppleTV with projection and screen. This space is a great place to prepare for presentations and meetings.
The lab has 10 Apple Quad-Core Intel i5 iMacs with 21.5 inch screens. The Media Lab is available anytime the Library is open unless it has been reserved for a class or meeting. Notices are posted when the Media Lab is not available.
The Video Studio is an indoor video recording space with two pre-configured sets - a large green screen set and an interview/conversation set. The Video Studio also has an empty area which allows you to setup and create your own “set” to match your needs.
