Terrapin Works is a collection of rapid prototyping, advanced manufacturing, and digital design resources provided as a service to the campus and surrounding community. These resources range from 100+ consumer, research and industrial grade 3D printers, to high end subtractive production systems capable of creating complex parts in a variety of materials. Terrapin Works offers production and design services as well as access to equipment in our 17 locations and 28,000 square feet of lab space across campus.
Terrapin Works is a subunit of Engineering Information Technology in the A. James Clark School of Engineering. Founded in 2014, the mission of Terrapin Works is to put additive manufacturing into the hands of undergraduate and graduate students alike while also supporting faculty and the greater UMD Community in innovative areas of research and product development. Terrapin Works seeks to convey a strong sense of learning through a uniquely hands-on approach to engineering. We are proud to say that 90% of our operations are run by undergraduate students (an undergrad even wrote this text).
Safety is a primary concern at Terrapin Works, and we work daily to ensure that every lab and every proceedure within our ecosystem exceeds industry and university requirements for safe use of equipment.
