View Resource FabCentral

Fab Labs are the educational outreach component for the Center for Bits and Atoms (CBA) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Fab Lab is an abbreviation for Fabrication Laboratory. It is a group of off-the-shelf, industrial-grade fabrication and electronics tools, wrapped in open source software and programs written by researchers at the Center for Bits and Atoms. Currently the labs...

View Resource Waterjet Videos

The Waterjet Video Vault contains clips of waterjet machines in action. The video of the foam cutting procedure is especially interesting, as it shows how quick and accurate the machining process can be. Other videos include a waterjet nozzle fired into the air; drawing up a part in CAD, making a tool path, then starting the cut; tilting the cutting head; and cutting 1/2" piece of aluminum. The...

View Resource Caltech Micromachining Laboratory

Entirely different and exotic machining techniques are required for creating microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) and other extremely small devices. The Caltech Micromachining Laboratory maintains this archive of research highlights and papers on its homepage, including a paper on a MEMS-driven flapping wing for a palm-sized aerial vehicle.
