Membership Meeting - Wed, 4/20/2016, 7:30 - 8:00 pm

Location: 9701 Dessau Rd #304, Austin TX 78754


The CNC Router proposal from last meeting carries over:

This proposal is vote on one of 3 options.

1. Convert back to the original setup w/ Mach 3. I used it under Danny's supervision for 25+ hrs with no problems, with both 2d and 3d carving. It was also converted back to the original setup less then an hour. Certification for training new trainers would be under Danny. I am also willing to teach classes on toolpathing and modeling in Fusion360, which we already have installed on the lab computers and should be used for standardization. For future setup, allow Danny 2 days a week to transition to the upgrade, LinuxCNC. The other 5 days a week be available for use to members trained.

2. Buy our own CNC. I'd be down to kick in for $500 towards this project.

3. Build our own. Plans to build a 5x10 CNC. Riley would lead the build. BOM would be ~$3500 in parts funded by the hackerspace and/or members.
