Instructional Fabrication Lab
"Making for Everyone"
The Instructional Fabrication Lab (IFL) is a Terrapin Works supported lab run by the Technical Operations unit under Engineering Information Technology. The IFL primarily focuses on providing hands-on education surrounding machining to all students and faculty at the university. It also provides machining and manufacturing advice to those working projects for the university and personal projects. The IFL offers an open access work space as well as access to various machine tools for those that have gone through the lab-provided safety training. The lab is mainly responsible for the processing of subtractive manufacturing jobs, and runs all orders under the categories of manual machining, cnc milling, and waterjet.
