A: Our current hours are 8AM-5PM Monday through Friday. We’re closed for lunch most days between 12pm-1pm but occasionaly have to take a later lunch to meet the needs of our members(send a message to the manager to get specifics for lunch-time closings that day). We are also closed on major holidays. See our calendar.

A: Our 3D Printers have very specific requirements when it comes to filaments and resins. We will provide a variety of filaments and resins at our cost to our members. Any outside filament/resin will have to be approved by the shop manager before us on one of our 3D Printers. As a convenience to our members, we will also eventually be offering a variety of other materials for purchase, including metals, plastics, and composites.
A: Yes! That’s what we’re here for. After your initial safety training, we’ll be happy to teach you how to use the equipment in our shop. Never be afraid to ask for help. Some of the more advanced pieces of equipment might require additional training, if so, we will have opportunities to sign-up.
A: Hangar6 offers design and prototyping services for our members, either in-house, or through our trusted network of partner professionals.
A: These are determined on a case-by-case basis, but any design/prototyping services offered to Hangar6 members will be at a subsidized rate.
A: Not at this time, but in the future we are hoping to extend our hours to allow members to keep working.
A: Yes. Hangar6 has its own secure wi-fi network. Among other things, we will use it to automatically “check-in/check-out” members as they visit.
