My vision for Open Hack Space is to connect the Hobbyist Fabricator who may now be dabbling with 3D printing, machining and electronics design with those who do it professionally.
I have seen the trial and error approach of those who have little fabrication background and yet have strong electronics backgrounds. Often times evident in the tooling chatter that can be heard from across the room followed by the ping of a broken tool.
I hope this bolsters our Open Source Fabrication community and adds back to the community through the advent of new technology and sound practice. Each side sharing their knowledge in clearly defined manner.
