The Making Rooms keeps a stock of standard materials for use with the machines and processes. For some of these such as acrylic and plywood for the laser cutter, 3D prints in resin and higher value electronics we charge for the cost of the materials, unless you can find a suitable offcut in the Fab Lab which are free.
Alternatively Fab Lab users can bring their own materials which is advisable if you are using specialist materials, less common colours, high-value components, etc.
The common materials we have for use are:
Printing inks – Black, white, cyan, magenta, yellow, green, red, blue
Moulding & casting
Blue machineable wax – for making moulds
OOMOO 25 – Silicon rubber
Vytaflex 30 – Urethane rubber
Smooth-cast 305 – White plastic
Smooth-cast 326 – White plastic
Herculite Stone plaster
FR1 copper circuit board stock – single & double sided, 50x75mm & 100x150mm
Basic electronic components – surface mount, resistors, capacitors, transistors, etc
Sensors – temperature, light, sound, magnetism, touch, movement
Actuators – LEDs, motors, speakers, LCD displays, servos, etc
Integrated circuits – Microcontrollers, Op-amps, radio transmitters/receivers, regulators, etc
