FamiLAB CNC Upgrades!

You may think Florida is weird. I’m happy to report that you’re not alone. The FamiLAB hackerspace is actually a Star Trek cultural observation post for aliens and they need some help with a malfunctioning replicator.

The FamiLAB Hackerspace in Central Florida is dedicated to supporting all higher life forms.  As such, we host several advanced spices of engineer and scientist. You need only to attend one of our monthly meetings to wonder where such an odd collection of creatures has come from. These “Doc” Browns are able to convert a slab of wood or similar substance into beautiful works of art, tools, signs and anything else that makes life bearable on earth. When functioning, this equipment turns a nerd into a Da Vinci.

This equipment will be available for all members to learn from and use.
