Make HSBNE the best Hackerspace in Australia
Make HSBNE a great Hackerspace?
Great, better, hard, stronger?
Do not like “best in australia”.
HSBNE Inc is Australia’s first Hackerspace, and one of the physically biggest in the world. We operate as an Incorporated Not-for-profit club, and we’re funded by Membership fees, donations and grants . We use this money to provide and improve our Port Hack Campus, as well as purchase tools and machinery for the benefit of our members and the community.
This reads painfully, need’s a reword. I’ll take a stab at it later.
We have a diverse group of people interested in: programming, electronics, firmware, software, RC vehicles, UAV’s, cars, mechatronics, robotics, 3D printing, PCB-etching, metal-casting, woodworking, and more.
does kickstarter support dot points?
What will you find at the new HSBNE?
is it really new? it’s been around for over 18 months. would say “This is HSBNE” or something to that effect.
Building 1 (clean Building)
I would classify this is the “main building” by definition all our buildings should be as clean as practicably possible.
The green room: here is where most of our members come together. You will be able to find a variety of hand tools, 3D printers, soldering irons, oscilloscopes, laser cutters and pcb etchers.
Dot Points, again. Also, computers, CNC Routers, work benches.
Classroom: once organised, the classroom will be able to accommodate up to 30 people and will allow regular workshops to take place. The classroom also doubles as a green screen room. A useful tool for any film or photography enthusiast.
Member Storage: this is a locked to non-members room available for members to store their tools and projects.
Has audit logs, is under video surveillance.
Also, you missed the games room, co-working rooms, server room.
The Boneyard: HSBNE stores some of its donated goods in a room known as the boneyard. Members are free to scavenge the boneyard for components by leaving a gold coin donation.
What now? Gold coin donation? Since when?
And, “some of it’s donated goods”?
This needs a re-write.
You missed the blacksmiths, completely, since they are active, and have a designated area, they should probs gets a look in? no?
Woodworking: Our woodworking focus is nascent, but we have an entire room devoted to it, as well as some tools: saws, dust extractors etc.
I consider myself good at english and had to google, nascent. This reads badly, not sure why.
Breaker Room: Set aside for project assembly and general use, this houses our 1ton, 1m2 3-phase Kiln.
Also has work benches.
Metalworking: This is our best equipped room. It holds 2 lathes, a manual mill, metal bandsaw, linisher, and welding equipment.
Is it? it “houses” not holds imo.
Also, more on this, a one liner doesn’t do it justice (or any of the other rooms for that matter).
The Warehouse: The warehouse is our giant, general purpose room. It holds our 2 ton Gantry, block-and-tackle, and our full sized car grease trap.
And our huge printer, cuter, laser, burner table thing.
Ill hit the goals in my next post.
Also, not a single “hacked” thing here, some, if not all of these should get a look in:
Also, giving out naming rights of the 3 buildings might be an option?
I would say i stand on the side of not giving out membership, we have clear cut induction process in place, lets stick to that.
An honour roll or similar, a laser etched piece of Acrylic or metal somewhere with funders might be a perk people would like?
Time on the laser
anyway. just my thoughts.
Looking good though! it’s a great start. I do like the video also.
