Visited Brisbane Hackerspace


#1

I’m visiting Australia for a while and thought I’d drop in on the Brisbane Hackerspace (HSBNE) to see what their space was like. It’s a short drive out of Brisbane in a fairly industrial part of town. They have an amazing amount of space - I think roughly 4500 square feet - and some pretty cool equipment. Some stand-outs for me was an industrial injection molder (boy would that have saved me some time), plastic vacuum former, kiln, and forge. I had a nice visit, and definitely recommend checking it out if you’re ever in the area. Now some pics!


They had a few of these 3D printers hooked up with Octoprint.


I think this is the same brand as ours? Not quite as big though.


Video game lounge with old-school consoles. They keep the CRT TV because apparently the old NES gun doesn’t work with modern TVs

This vending machine pops fresh flavored popcorn!


They can use the parking lot/courtyard for outdoor activities. Across the courtyard is a big metalworking space and a separate woodworking space.
