"The Dallas Makerspace is..., shared community workshop and laboratory. We are an organized group of local artists, engineers, makers, and thinkers who work together to provide tools and learning resources to the public."
I'd heard about tool libraries in California and other places, but didn't know Dallas had such a place.
There were many people in there working on things, walking in and out, talking, and generating lots of energy. There was a guy designing prototypes for new concentrated solar design and making models with 3D printer. 80 hours a week - that's how much he devotes for that project.
If you have ideas to make something, or just want to learn, tinker and try out anything without buying many tools in Dallas, this is the place to go.
