Think[box] is happy to announce that we are able to bring fabrication training back to our users.  We will be rolling this out slowly, and to start with training will be offered on Thursdays only. 

Training for fabrication equipment is offered to our users in order to assist you to become familiar with the safe operation of and capabilities of our equipment.  It is not necessary to have a project in mind to sign up for training.  Training sessions last between 30 minutes and 2 hours, depending on the equipment.  Please arrive 5 minutes before your scheduled training slot to ensure proper time to check-in and prepare.  

If you don’t want to spend the time being trained to use the equipment on your own, you can always make a normal appointment and bring your project materials in and we will assist you as best as we can. Also, should you desire to submit your design and have it fabricated for you (for a fee) please schedule a consultation.
