The Electrolounge is fully stocked with a Circuit Mill, Oscilloscope, Soldering tools, Logic Analyzer, LCR Meter, Circuit Diagnostic Tools, IR Thermometer, and Embroidery/Sewing Machine. All of these resources can be used with the help or independently of ULI's.
This computer numerically controled (CNC) mill is programmable in the XY-plane on the attached digital interface. Files can be uploaded via a USB. With this mill, users can position the drill, mill lines (in any direction), mill arcs, cut out circles, and make profiles and pockets. All plastics and metals can be milled, however, steel requires the machine to be put into a lower gear. Note that the Z-plane control is manual and that wood is not allowed on the machine. This machine is located in the BME Shop in the Whitaker Biomedical Engineering Building.
Founded in late 2009, the Invention Studio is a student-run maker space open to all of Georgia Tech. It is staffed by the Prototyping Instructors, student volunteers who are on hand to train you and help with your projects. Use of the studio is free for all students, faculty and staff of Georgia Tech, regardless of year, major, or prior experience.
Located in the basement of the College of Design East building, students can use the facilities to prototype models and refine designs. There is an exterior space which is available to use 24/7 by students with proper buzzcard access, and an interior space which requires supervision and prior training.
