As a prototyping and development workspace, Fab Lab Tulsa primarily uses easily machined material families that include wood products, plastic products, foam products, paper products, films, foils, and resins. Presently the lab does not have any metalworking or composite working capabilities.
Lab Furnished Materials
The lab furnishes limited amounts of materials that are compatible with its equipment and available for its lab members to use for small projects. These materials are made available free of charge to lab members and are expected to be used in moderation.
Member Furnished Materials
Members will furnish the bulk of the materials they need for their own projects. Member furnished materials must satisfy the following requirements: 1) materials must be compatible with Fab Lab Tulsa's machinery and PPE and 2) materials must not present a hazard to the lab environment. Members are expected to clean up, discard and/or remove waste material from their fabrication activities before leaving the lab.
Usage Guidelines - All Materials
Any foreign material brought into the lab must be 1) Identifiable, 2) Compatible with the lab’s machinery, and 3) Non-Hazardous.
Observe posted material safety signs in the lab.
Lab members will furnish a Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) at the request of lab staff for any material they bring into the lab. If a material cannot be identified it cannot be used in the lab. NO EXCEPTIONS.
