Additive Manufacturing (AM LAB)

  • Additive manufacturing, sometimes called 3D printing, is a process used to build geometry out of a raw material without the constraints of traditional tooling. Generally, software is used to “slice” a 3D model into thin layers which are built successively onto a build platform. Multiple additive technologies exist, each with the ability to produce a variety of materials and geometries. Each machine and material has unique properties that should be considered when choosing a process.
  • Do you need a 3D part printed, but don’t have access to a 3D printer or don’t want to wait for a 3D printer in the lab to become available? Try the MedTech IITK 3D Printing Service.
  • Project Manus in MedTech IITK run a service where Start-ups, industries and other organizations can submit 3D print jobs online, then we analyse and 3D print them for you and let you know when you job is ready for pickup include any post processing required.
  • Entrepreneurs can learn a lot about engineering and making by learning the different prospect of additive manufacturing. However, sometimes you just need a part printed for a project or you may just start learning few others AM processes like ADAM,SLA,SLA and FDM.

Fab Lab/Electronics

Introduction to electronic lab components or equipment’s. Basic purpose of this electronic lab components article is to introduce you with electronics lab components and their use in electronics lab experiments. In electronic circuit lab, the primary piece of equipment that you will be dealing with is the Trainer Board. A trainer board is essentially a collection of most of the electronic lab components that are typically required when working with logic circuits

Wet Lab

A wet lab, or experimental lab, is a type of laboratory where it is necessary to handle various types of chemicals and potential “wet” hazards, so the room has to be carefully designed, constructed, and controlled to avoid spillage and contamination.
