Space Project Updates


  • The whole B-Side shop area got a second+ coat of white paint over the weekend. Like 20ish gallons of it!
  • Right now if you want to help, there's a ton of masking tape/plastic sheeting that needs to be peeled off of doors, windows, outlet boxes, breaker panels, etc. Other than the windows, this should all be at ground level.
  • The first two zones that are going to/have started moving are Welding and the Wood Shop.
  • See the updated Expansion page for the projected order of zones. Do note that the order/phasing is just when zones could move/spring into existence based on other dependencies, not necessarily when they will.

  • I am looking for assistance on a longterm cosplay build: a 3D printed Iron Man-variant suit. I can run the printers quite well, but have zero experience in painting and finishing the parts after they come off the print bed. I would appreciate it if someone could devote time to assist me. The plan is that we would work on finishing the parts together while I learn how to do it independently. Once I am fully confident with my abilities, I will do the rest on my own. Since this commitment may turn into a long-term project, I am more than happy to pay for the time if desired. Wjk (talk) 18:29, 16 February 2021 (EST)
