Our Shop

WCRJ works out of a cage located inside the University of Louisville’s new Engineering Garage. This sponsorship by the University of Louisville provides the team with work and classroom space immediately next door to GE’s FirstBuild cocreation micro-factory. When high-precision parts are needed for our robots, WCRJ members can walk next door to FirstBuild to use its fabrication tools including water jets, laser cutters, and power tools which FirstBuild makes available to the public. In exchange for use of their facilities, FirstBuild asks users to post creations made at FirstBuild’s on its website to help stimulate collaborative innovation within the local maker community.
