ATX Hackerspace is a collaborative art, craft and fabrication space in Northeast Austin. We offer
- Laser Cutters
- Fully equipped wood, craft, metal and electronics workshops
- An auto bay
- Bio lab
- Rentable classroom/meetup space
More importantly, we are a community of passionate experts, learners, makers, artists, geeks, parents, children, students, and professionals. You are likely to find expert advice and eager collaborators for anything you're looking to build.
To get started, come to an Open House, every Tuesday from 6pm to 10pm. We will give you a tour of the space and answer your questions about our tools, methods, and membership. The Calendar lists other recurring events, such as the Member Meeting on the 1st-Wednesday of each month. If you have burning questions not answered here, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

Membership earns you 24/7 access to the space following a mandatory free orientation class. Several of the tools and areas require a training class. A few of the more popular tools require a calendar reservation so that you can be sure to run your job to completion. Apart from reasonable fees for classes and consumable costs, there are no additional usage fees. We also offer a Family Rate and a Starving Hacker Rate if you're interested.
The space is run by volunteers, for volunteers. Members are urged (but not required) to help us grow, groom and improve the space. Ask around for how you can help!
What is ATX Hackerspace?
We are a collaborative industrial workshop full of people who love to learn and make things!
We have over 8,000 square feet of space that is perfect for artists, designers, engineers, makers and hackers, fabbers, scientists, musicians, seminars and workshops, co-working, and a ton of other stuff. We're the perfect place for any project that needs space, involves loud or messy equipment (woodworking, soldering, welding, painting), power (we have 120V, 240V, and 3-phase power), tools that are too expensive or large for your own workshop ( see our laser cutters, CNC mills, and 3D printers ) or meeting with collaborators.
More importantly, we are an established and ever-growing community. Imagine what we can do when we combine our skills, knowledge, ideas, tools, and materials... or see for yourself at our next Open House, every Tuesday evening from 6-10pm.
We're hackers (thoroughly defined here), which means we create things and we put things together in new and innovative ways. ATX Hackerspace is dedicated to encouraging and promoting technical, scientific, and artistic skills through projects, collaboration, and education by all legal means.
Hours and Events
Members are given 24-hour access and may bring up to two guests to the space at any time.
