Welcome to the Artifactory!
Please take a few minutes to read this New Members Guide to orientate yourself with our ways and practices.
We are designated as a factory space.
Keep it nice for everyone else:
Members are entitled (subject to availability) to a single committee authorised storage space (up to 150L) left in a tidy and safe state. It maybe a locker or storage space on the pallet rack. Ask in #welcome on Slack or contact your nearest committee member to get assigned a space.
No guarantees are made to the security of your belongings on site.
If you cancel your membership via resignation, termination etc your belongings will be stored for a period of one month. Once this period has expired the belongings will be claimed by the association and may be used or disposed of as the Management Committee sees fit.
Members are entitled to request for additional storage on the pallet racking. Additional storage will be charged at a rate of $60 per half a pallet rack per month and will be restricted to the upper racks. To date the committee has not authorised a storage space under this By-Law due to space constraints in the workshop.
|Material Racks||The areas that have sheets of MDF/Ply etc for short term storage by members.|
|Design Lab||The Design Lab houses our design workstations as well as our 3D printers and vinyl cutter.|
|Tool Room (front)||The front part of the machine room contains power tools, the drill press, drop saw, hydraulic press, and spindle sander.|
|Tool Room (back)||The back part of the machine room contains the CNC router, belt sander, table saw, bench grinder, and wood lathe.|
|Welding Bay||Next to the front roller door, but also includes the area directly inside the roller door. Contains welding, casting, and metal cutting equipment.|
|Laser Area||Where the Laser Cutters live.|
|Stage||The stage is at the front of the space and houses the Artifactory collection of A/V gear and interesting lighting. Also houses one of the space sound systems.|
|Social Area||The area with the couches just outside the Design Lab. Please don't work on projects on this table.|
|Bar/Kitchen||The bar and the kitchen. Includes a full coffee machine, dishwasher, fridges, and washing machine.|
|Car Park||The front bit outside, where the large bin is and where cars should go. No Project work or material storage here.|
|Rear Courtyard||Through the rear roller door to the outside courtyard, larger projects and spraying is permitted - try not to let it blow back inside the space.|
|Project Area||The big open bit in the middle of the space not covered by any of the previous areas.|
|Electronics Lab||The electronics area has a bunch of work bays for hacking on most anything that facilitates the flow of electrons including Soldering Stations, Oscilloscopes and lab power supplies.|
|Upcycle Rack||The area opposite the welding bay. Stuff(with in reason) gets donated here free for anyone to do stuff with. If you left your unlabelled project or thing around the Artifactory it may end up here. Contents from this bench routinely end up in the skip.|
|Hack Rack||The shelves immediately outside the Heavy Tool Roon. Contains a wide variety of potentially useful stuff.|
|Rehearsal Room||In between the CAD room and studio room, used by Artifactorians with Band Memberships.|
|Shed||Paints/Spray paints for communal use and anything labelled flammable.|
Slack is the number one point of contact for anything and everything Artifactory.
