Austin Wilpan

Instrumentation Fabricator

I design and fabricate novel devices for scientific research along with equipment repair. As a maker, my passion lies in taking back of the napkin ideas, designing digital 3D concepts from them, and building them into physical objects.

My team works together to design and fabricate novel instruments to allow scientists to not be limited in their experimentation by what is available. This is done by using CAD to design a 3d model of an idea and then bring it into reality either through additive manufacturing or assembly. I also will recreate parts for essential equipment when replacement parts are not available.
