Laser Cutter for FAMiLab hackerspace

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

A laser engraver is a cheaper solution to industrial fabrication than a full laser cutter or cnc router, and can be used to mass-produce cheap parts for MakerBots and RepRaps to precise measurements. it only takes $1600 to $1700 to afford one for our hackerspace open-to-the-public lab in Altamonte Springs.

Melbourne Hackerspace?

I'm new to the FL Creatives group - only been to one meeting but I like what I saw. I've read some of the coworking discussions in the forums but I find that my tastes lean towards a different yet similar direction - a hackerspace.

For everyone who doesn't know what a hackerspace is I'll explain. It's a shared space for electronics/computer hobbyists to ply their craft and meet with other people of a like mind. I know we've got a few web-type hackers in the group and I hope to make this something that appeals to them. But I know my interests and talents lie in electronics and programming - Arduinos, Python, solar cells, etc. I hope that there are others out there like me who want to put together a place with decent tools, equipment and space to make their hobby more enjoyable.
