About This Space

The Pit is the main workroom for prototype assembly and non-precision machining. The space is equipped with hand and power tools for prototyping in plastic and wood, and it is well stocked with raw materials, hardware, and found components. The space is accessible to all students who have completed orange badge training. Some equipment requires TA consent before usage but is otherwise open for students to use freely. Students can also enjoy having access to all equipment in the lab for personal projects, but are asked to supply their own material.
