Kai Staats using a reciprocating saw to cut a wall panel for the SAM Workshop at Biosphere 2.

Luna snapping a chalk line at SAM, Biosphere 2 The SAM Workshop will house a power panel, mini-split heating and cooling, 3D printer, sewing machine, and repair bench with a variety of tools for in-hab repair and fabrication. This room has a five layer sealed floor topped with steel sheets and Insofast brand, closed-cell foam panels with built-in plastic studs. On these panels we have added fiberglass reinforced panels (FRP) to protect the insulation, provide a strong structure on which to mount electrical conduit, shelving, and lights; and provide a readily cleanable surface.
