Major Equipment with Required Training

Here is a list of the major equipment, compiled from the individual zone wiki pages and arranged alphabetically, with zone, ownership, instructors and access. The instructors listed are those that have volunteered to train others and have been approved to do so by the zone warden. Access is either OPEN (you decide whether you can handle the machine, or need some training);i3 TRAINING REQ'D (you have to be trained by an approved i3 trainer or get Warden approval of prior experience with that type of equipment), or PRIVATE (you must contact owner for permission to use [rare]).

The following list is an attempt to offer up suggestions of tasks that could be accomplished in the various zones 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.

Electronics Room

Task Name Description Priority Champion
Populate ToDo List Add a list of things that are needed/wanting to be done in the eRoom. 1 Nate B.

Fab Lab

Task Name Description Priority Champion
Get Protomat Working The VM for the Protomat has not yet been completed and verified to function as a controller. 2 Matt Gardeski & Andrew Meyer
Mount Flash Card Reader The flash card reader currently sits on top of the old Fab Lab PC. A better place would be mounted underneath the shelf near the monitor, with the most useful slots facing outwards. 4
Printrbot The Printrbot has gotten some love, and now prints decently well. Things that need to happen still:
  • replacing the firmware with Repetier
  • getting a VM set up for it
  • maybe build a Power Tower to house the power supply and spool
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
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
