The Edgerton Center Student Shop is now in 6C
Spring 2021 Access Information
Please note that
Our new home is now in the basement of 6C, just off the Infinite Corridor (Campus Map). The MakerLodge Metropolis Shop is next door.
The Edgerton Center Student Shop provides students with training and access to a wide range of fabrication tools from milling machines to lathes and a 3-D printer.
Funded by MIT, with capital-equipment acquisitions covered by an endowed gift from the Lemelson Foundation, the shop offers intensive training classes of 12 hours per student. With nothing but raw materials, students learn to build machines from scratch. While mainly a metalworking shop, we also offer 3-D printing facilities on site.
Students have fabricated parts for the VERTIGO experiment, now installed in the International Space Station, and parts for a dark-matter detector installed 2,000 feet underground in New Mexico.
