HICAPACITY

Hey everyone, we have some big news to share.

HICapacity will be moving to a new space!

The details are still forthcoming and we will be updating everyone as they arise. What we do know for sure is that we need to be out of our current space by September 1st, which is coming up fast! We are trying our hardest to minimize the amount of downtime for our members but we do need your help cleaning up the space and moving things over to the new space.

Here is a list of things we need help with:

  • If anyone is available to help move things or to help temporarily store some items at their homes, we would be grateful.
  • We are planning to organize a clean-up day to pack up and move things out. If you are willing to help, let us know!
  • If you have left anything at the space, we advise that you stop by soon and pick it up. We are planning to get rid of a lot of things during the move so if you’ve left anything at the space, please pick it up if you don’t want it to be potentially discarded.
  • If you currently have a locker in the space please come down and take your items home with you for safekeeping. We don’t yet know if we will be moving the lockers to the new location.

It is going to be a crazy next few weeks but stay tuned!

Hey everyone, this is just a quick note that the BoxJelly will be shutting down today (Thursday Aug, 7th) at 2pm. They will be closed until Sunday and will provide another update on Sunday as to what will be happening next week. Check for updates on their Facebook page. This also means that HICapacity will be closed and will not reopen until the BoxJelly does. If you need anything from the space please retrieve it before 2pm today. Please note that equipment and boxes have been moved off the floor because of flooding concerns. You will not be able to work in the HICap area as all desk and table surfaces are now covered in equipment.

Stay safe everyone and we’ll see you next week!

Hello everyone! If you haven’t already noticed the site has receieved a facelift. We originally launched the previous version of the site back in late 2011. The look and feel hadn’t changed much since then. The site became old and boring and we felt it was time for a change. The goal of this version of the site was to minimize the amount of images being used. The old version would load badly on slower connections due to having too many background textures and other images.

Another change that has been made to the site is the perks page has been sunset. Its pertinent information has been merged into the membership information page. We also now have a page about services provided by HICapacity. We now have 3D printing and 3D modeling services available! Check it out!

We also have a new logo! HICapacity member Jesse has been hard at work! He created our new logo and it is proudly being displayed above.

The site will continue to receive updates in the coming weeks but it will generally be small tweaks or updates to the information on the site. It won’t be too drastic.

If you haven’t been down to the space recently, you should come check out our new MakerBot Replicator! It is frequently in use so you can watch a model getting printed. Or even print one of your own. Thank you to all of those who donated funds to purchase our awesome new toy! :)

Hope everyone is doing well. See you later!
