M3 Post community,
I was just given access through my school, Carnegie Mellon University, the Silicon Valley campus to some great equipment. It includes a plastic 3D printer, 2D laser cutter, milling machine, and a ton of other equipment for creating circuit boards and testing RF & electromagnetic signals. I am posting the pictures below of what our shop looks like.
Although I have no training, I do at least have the facilities and permissions to use equipment if I want to. I will receive some basic training but if anyone can think of a use for this very high tech equipment, we should build something!!
The faculty encourages building things even if it is not school related. The 3D printer uses standard srf files to make prototypes, so it would be cool if a designer came out of the M3post woodwork! And if we made something that worked we could send it off to manufacturing, through the school! Here is the equipment:
Electromagnetic radiograph, no idea!?
Signal processing station
Microchip Soldering station
