I’d like to propose that for the next Digifab cause meeting we have we vote to open up access to the laser cutter with a few provisos. These include:
- The induction is completed with a supervisor and the first x (I’d suggest 3, but leave it at the supervisor’s discretion.) uses are supervised.
- Pre and post-use checklists are put in place so we can be sure of the state of the machine and can keep its users accountable. Not completing either would result in temporary loss of access for a scaling 1 week/2
- The interlock will automatically lock out after X hours of being on to force required maintenance.
- Usage is then recorded against each member, the donation tin for the laser cutter is then tallied monthly against this.
I’ve mocked up both the checklists and the induction materials previously but now I need help making sure they’re complete.
The induction paperwork is up at https://docs.google.com/document/d/1gQ0-I-9TWE0LPN-uSF4agQDaYtyw8TEMHGmJVdLYyQ8/edit?usp=sharing and the forms are up at https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSe42nmtsTvwFcxk0v6JyDe-mA53xMKFtAiVcE9Qbd9FtA15hA/viewform
