My university, UT Arlington, has announced plans to build a Makerspace in their Central Library and they are looking for people to help provide input on what the space will be made up of. The university already has a few of the machines needed in various other departments scattered around the University in less than accessible locations but this will be a new innovation hub for equipment and resources geared towards students and community members. Please feel free to contact the email address in the end of the news article if you are interested in consulting with the University on the project.
The CXI Space will be a “makerspace” built upon the expertise of UT Arlington faculty, alumni, industry thought-leaders and the philanthropic investment of corporate and private partners. Makerspaces are a fast developing phenomenon worldwide, bringing together diverse inventors in a ...

Survived the Lemons race, had lots of down time on Saturday but everyone got to drive the car on track at least and we finished in the bottom 1/2 of all cars, still waiting on official results to be posted online.

On Friday during the test session we discovered that that the previous owner or their friend had done the clutch job themselves and did something horribly wrong(either not torquing the bolts or reusing old ones) and the flywheel actually fell off at pit exit as I was entering the track. That explained the odd clutch issues we had been noticing, previously we thought it was just air in clutch line and we kept bleeding and adjusting the master cylinder. We were able to replace flywheel/clutch in parking lot by 8pm Friday. The flywheel is held on with only 5 of 6 bolts and lots of jb weld now, one of the old bolts broke off inside the crankshaft and couldn't be removed.

Started race fine on Saturday for a couple hours, but a small piece of plastic from inside the fuel pump sock made its way into the fuel pump, the worst part being it would fail intermittently, so it would start running in pits again and go back on track, where it would fail again and we would have to get towed back in. We replaced fuel pump Saturday night after we first tried replacing fuel filter and rewiring the fuel pump and the car ran perfectly Sunday until they called the race a couple hours early due to the cold / sleet.

Does the Dallas Makerspace have vacuforming equipment? I'm interested in making a suit of Space Marine Armor and this is the one thing I can't get a hold of.

Thursdays are basically just our open house night, where we physically prop the door open. We don't have a doorbell yet and our new building is huge, so other times can be a bit sketchy for getting in. :)

That said, you could probably coordinate with someone to check it out another night (myself included, but I have a wacky schedule too). Check out our calendar too (http://dallasmakerspace.org/calendar/). Almost every event we put on there is open to the public.

good idea on the wire mesh.  concrete is very brittle.  it does great with compressive forces but under dynamic loads it can crack quite easily hence all of our home foundation problems.

an idea would be to test sample 12"x12" blocks with different aggregate, water, and mix ratios.  Test different types of aggregate too such as rubber, metal, wood, etc.  Perform different stress tests on the sample blocks.
