A process for making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, typically by laying down many successive thin layers of a material.
TL houses 4 such 3D printers including a high-precision resin 3D printer.
A prototyping and manufacturing tool used primarily by engineers, designers, and artists to cut and etch into flat material.
A bed of size 6' x 4' is present at TL which has been extensively used for materials like aluminum, acrylic, medium-density fibreboards and many others.
Computer numerical control (CNC) Machine uses numerical data to control a machine. CNC machines rely on a system of three linear and three rotational axes in order to calculate the motion and position of machine components and workpieces.
Milling is the cutting operation that removes metal by feeding the work against a rotating, cutter having single or multiple cutting edges. Flat or curved surfaces of many shapes can be machined by milling with good finish and accuracy.
a machine tool that rotates a workpiece about an axis of rotation to perform various operations such as cutting, sanding, knurling, drilling, deformation, facing, and turning, with tools that are applied to the workpiece to create an object with symmetry about that axis.
A power tool is a tool that is actuated by an additional power source and mechanism other than the solely manual labor used with hand tools. The most common types of power tools use electric motors
Soldering is one of the most fundamental skills needed to dabble in the world of electronics. The two go together like peas and carrots.
The main purpose of an oscilloscope is to graph an electrical signal as it varies over time. Most scopes produce a two-dimensional graph with time on the x-axis and voltage on the y-axis.
Tinkerers' Laboratory has lots of cool electronics like sensors, Arduino boards, RaspberyPis, ESP32s, several programmable ICs and boards.
In addition, these items can be issued to work on projects at home!
It is a platform where they can transform their idea into product. Other labs have many issues like permissions but this is a lab for students run by students. Everything is available there so that they come with an idea and go out with a product. Initially, thought that they didn't want to push students to get a product and let TL use as a space and eventually after few years products will come out of tl.

I have been using the Tinkerers’ Laboratory since my first year, and I couldn’t be more grateful. Every Project that I have worked on has had a portion (or even the entire thing) completed in TL, from brainstorming to actual building. It isn’t just the availability of nearly every piece of equipment I needed, it’s also the community surrounding the lab. Help and guidance is there whenever I need it.

Tinkerers’ Lab (TL) has played a very pivotal role in my life@IITB. I think idea of TL is so awesome. Working in TL fulfilled the conception I had while preparing for JEE, about how engineering at the Indian Institute of Technology ought be. Inspired, I believed that I was uniquely positioned to lead TL.
