… an egg cup Dalek
heading_triangle
We bet you didn’t see that one coming!
Some may say why? Others may say why not…? An egg cup Dalek is a great idea. But frankly, the egg cup doesn’t matter as much as WE HAVE A LASER CUTTER!! You may have thought that the Fabrication Lab couldn’t get much better; that the 3D printers, sewing machines, tools and CNC were pretty cool, but we think we’ve just topped it!
 
Are you ready to play? Access to the Laser Cutter works like all the other resources in the Fabrication Lab. To book the resource you first need to complete a safety induction.  But, we haven’t released any inductions for the Laser Cutter yet. If you’d like to be informed when the inductions are running, register your details with us, and we’ll put you on the priority waiting list.
 
Yes, please add me to the Laser Cutter waitlist.

Story Auxiliary Partnership

The Edge is a space for community, and a lot of what we offer and program couldn’t happen without the engagement of community and key partnerships. We want to share the love, and showcase some of our partnerships. So, each month we’ll introduce you to someone new. To kick us off, we’d like you to meet the crew from Auxiliary Design School; check out what they’ve been up to in the Fabrication Lab…

Story Edge users – New account features
