Welcome

Welcome to the fab lab! If you don't know what something does, please ask. The Zone Warden is Andrew Meyer. The zone warden sign is here: File:FabLabZonePoster.docx

Tools in this zone:

Printrbot

Rostock MAX

Full Spectrum Pegasus Touch

LPKF C30/S (PCB Mill)

Full Spectrum Laser Cutter

Pricing

To cover the cost of consumables/maintenance, please contribute when you use the Fab Lab equipment. Put mones into the wooden cash box.

Plastic for 3D printing is priced by gram or cubic centimeter of extruded plastic, or by milliliter of resin. Please include all the test extrusions and failed prints in your measurements.

Laser time is measured based on laser firing time. Use the timer in the RetinaEngrave3D software

Equipment Price
3mm ABS (printrbot) 5¢/gram or cm^3
1.75mm ABS (Rostock) 10¢/gram or cm^3

TODO List

The following list is an attempt to offer up suggestions of tasks that could be accomplished in the Fab Lab by people interested in helping out.

Feel free to take charge of one or more of these items as your time and expertise allow. If you have taken charge of a task, please put your name into the field next to the task.

Should you run out of time or ability to complete a task, make sure to post on the mailing list and "fail loudly". This ensures that task status is shared, and no task languishes in silent failure.

Task Name Description Priority Champion
Get Protomat Working Protomat spindle motor is pretty broken. 2 Brandon Biller
drop laser vent impeller see how caked in stuff it is 4
Printrbot The Printrbot has been disassembled partially and does not function: (Taken home by Matt H for rehabilitation/destruction by fire) 4 Matt Huber
Decorative Work The Fab Lab currently has a sort of forest theme going on. It would be nice to continue the theme by painting the conduits and stanchions deep brown to simulate vines and trunks, put up more vinyl leaves, and paint the ceiling with either a sky pattern or a forest canopy pattern. 5 Max Gonyea-Alexander
Manufacture Focus Gauge for FS Laser A sturdy, solid, non-deformable block 1.359" (critical dimension) tall and nominally 0.75" diameter (or square). Chamfered or filletted corners for comfort. 1 Greg Smith
Relabel tools The Fab Lab now officially uses RED as the tool-label color. Please find any tools labeled "Fab Lab" using yellow and replace it with red. 2 Andrew Meyer
Patch Ceiling The removal of the old PVC ventilation ducting left a hole in the ceiling of the lab, with a PVC ring still in place. Removal of the ring is desired. There is an 8" square patch and patch compound available in the cabinet under the Protomat. The patch should also cover the two smaller holes further over the shelf. 3 Evan Allen
Replace USB Hub The current USB hub used by the Fab Lab server sucks. Suggested replacement would be one or two USB2.0 self-powered hubs. If two, one would be mounted on the underside of the bottom shelf near the monitor for flash drives and such, and the other tucked away hidden for machine interfaces. 4 Andrew Meyer
Relocate Pegboard The pegboard hanging on the wall behind the office-side door is a much-appreciated secret donation. However, being behind the door is a less-than-useful location. A good target for this would be on the Other side of the corkboard, where the coathook is. The coathook should then be relocated to where the pegboard currently is. 4 Potlock

Important Notes

  • Please keep the door between the Fab Lab and the Commons area closed. Doing so will help ensure that when the heater or air conditioner is running, the Fab Lab maintains an appropriate temperature. Also the AC/Heater for the office space isn't anywhere near efficient enough to cool/heat the main shop area, and we don't want to spend a hojillion dollars letting it try.
    • If you will be creating dust in the office area (drywall, rtc.), please close the hallway-side door, safely shut down hardac.i3detroit.local, or, better, contact the Fab Lab or Infrastructure wardens
    • The shop-rated filters in hardac are not rated for construction dust.
  • Please don't use the FabLab as a shortcut between the commons area and the eLab when someone is working in there. There's not a lot of room, and having a parade go by while you're arguing with the printrbot isn't all that much fun.
