In cases where these ideas require custom built devices, CITEC offers its members the possibilty to realize these devices in CITEC's new mechanical workshop (located in W0). In this talk we will take a brief look at what the workshop can offer. If the problem at hand is simple enough to be solved without professional help, you can use the tools and equipment provided in our do-it-yourself room (Q0) and in CITEC central labs (M5) (more on CITEC central labs also in the next talk, see below). Complex tasks require thorough planning, which is why CITEC offers powerful CAD/CAM software licensing for its members. CITEC's mechanical workshop can bring your wildest concepts into reality with the help of qualified personnel who are experts on lathes, mills, CNC-machines and a rapid prototyping (3D-printer). The CITEC electronical workshop is currently under construction and therefore only offers professional help with soldering problems presently. The talk concludes by offering information about CAD/CAM software licensing, DIY tools/equipment, and the workshop usage policy and associated costs for the end user's department. 12:15 - 12:45 p.m. Sven Wachsmuth: Central Lab Facilities 12:55 - 1:15 p.m. Plenary session
