Dear @lasers ,
Back in 2017 it was decided during a members meeting that a booking system would be utilised to allow fair use of the laser cutter, reduce members travelling a distance turning up only to find someone is on the laser cutter with 2 hr job etc.
The booking system can be located by:
Scroll down to bookings (here you will see any recent bookings)
Click on bookings (this brings up the calendar)
Click on all bookings - select laser cutter
Double check current bookings and select new topic
Add description - Laser cutting this time - that time
Click on the calendar icon - add date and time - click done
Click create topic.
It has been discussed among laser techs to allow fair use of the laser cutter bookings should follow these guidelines:
Bookings should not be longer than 2 hrs (if no one books or is in the space waiting to use the laser cutter you can continue cutting).
No re-booking within a 2hr time frame.
Members that do not show up within 30mins of the booking slot will lose booking to members waiting to use the laser in the space.
Members are not permitted to use the laser cutter and wood shop at the same time. i.e make a cut, sand laser project and return to laser cutting job during designated booking slot.
Thank you for your cooperation.
