Read about the fabulous benefits that come with being an important part of your local hackerspace
What is ATX Hackerspace?
We are a collaborative industrial workshop full of people who love to learn and make things! ATX Hackerspace can be found at:
We have 8,000 square feet of space that is perfect for artists, designers, engineers, makers and hackers, fabbers, scientists, musicians, seminars and workshops, co-working, and a ton of other stuff. We're the perfect place for any project that needs space, involves loud or messy equipment (woodworking, soldering, welding, painting), power (we have 120V, 240V, and 3-phase power), tools that are too expensive or large for your own workshop ( see our laser cutters, CNC mills, and 3D printers ) or meeting with collaborators.
More importantly, we are an established and ever-growing community. Imagine what we can do when we combine our skills, knowledge, ideas, tools, and materials . . . or see for yourself at our next Open House, every Tuesday evening from 8-11pm.
Maybe you're just starting out? There are always some smart, fun people around the Hackerspace to help you learn something new.
We're hackers (thoroughly defined here), which means we create things and we put things together in new and innovative ways. ATX Hackerspace is dedicated to encouraging and promoting technical, scientific, and artistic skills through projects, collaboration, and education by all legal means.
