A process for making a physical object from a three-dimensional digital model, typically by laying down many successive thin layers of a material.
A prototyping and manufacturing tool used primarily by engineers, designers, and artists to cut and etch into flat material.
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' lab has lots of cool electronics stuff like sensors, arduino boards, Raspbery pi, etc.
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.

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.

Our counterparts in US and Europe learn to build and tinker with systems from an early age. That gives them an edge when we compete with them in our professional lives. Innovators like Steve Jobs of Apple and Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook developed their innovative ideas while experimenting as students, whereas we at IIT usually learn how to excel within confined bounds of curriculum and examination system. I believe that to be relevant in technology game, IITs have to meet the challenge of how to motivate their students to build things, to take initiatives and to learn to innovate by building and Tinkerers' Lab(TL) will play an important role in that."
