Digital Fabrication Area

Please:

  • Leave the area cleaner than you found it.
  • Don’t create mess in the Digifab room, our tools are sensitive to dust etc.
  • Return tools to their homes and don’t remove them from the Digifab room.
  • Read the wiki before attempting to use a tool in Digital Fabrication.
  • Don’t leave machines running unattended.
  • Don’t use tools that are marked as out of order.
  • Pay for all consumables you use unless they are for improving digifab or HSBNE infrastructure.
  • Don’t use your own consumables in a machine unless you have received permission from a maintainer of that machine.
  • Precisely follow a tool’s workflow unless you have received permission from a maintainer of that tool to adjust it.
  • Report all broken or misbehaving tools using the “Report Issue” link in the portal or by sending an email to issues@hsbne.org.

Detailed policy information can be found on the Digital Fabrication Team wiki page.

3D Printers:

  • Induction process is to read the entire 3D printers page, in addition to the machine specific page.

Redsail 60w Laser Cutter:

  • For the laser cutter, it is a hands-on class on how to use the machine after the Supervisor has checked the machine and your competency.
  • Use requires supervision even after this, but it will generally be less hands on and more the Supervisor ensuring the machine is operating properly.
  • Supervisors are listed on the tool's wiki page.
  1. Laser cutters: The machines themselves require supervision, so a supervisor must be around for the machines to be operated by anyone.
