- About Us
If you are a current member and are not yet back in the shop, we want to help you with the new scheduling system. Join yo.atxhs.org, our new member forum, to re-connect with the community. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with questions. For the latest details on our reopening, including current safety and sanitizing policies, check out our reopening plan. If you're all paid up, you can register and schedule shop time on Skedda. We are having some trouble with Freshbooks' new iteration, so please let us know if you run into trouble. Thank you for your patience and continued support as we take the most generous and safest path we can find through global pandemic.
What is ATX Hackerspace?
ATX Hackerspace is a Volunteer-run collaborative art, craft and fabrication space in Northeast Austin.
Members pay a $75 monthly fee to have access to equipment and space
These are some of the resources available for members' use:
▪ Metal shop (includes MIG and TIG welders, plasma cutter, grinders, bandsaw and chopsaws)
▪ Machine shop (includes Mllling machines,lathes, and Tormach CNC Mill)
▪ Industrial woodshop (includes lathes, saws, router, sander, hand tools)
▪ Two Laser engravers
▪ multiple 3-d printers
▪ CNC router
▪ Auto bay and tools
▪ Bio lab
▪ Rentable classroom
▪ Private Coworking area
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. As members, we give our time freely to support the space because we believe this space is of value to our community. Since we do this in our free time, response times to ATXHS email and questions will vary. A class or a competency check-off is required for access to many of the resources listed above.
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.

ATXHS in the time of Covid-19
Because we serve a broad range of communities, and pretty much the definition of a shared workshop is to share air and surfaces, and we want to do our part to keep our communities safe, ATXHS closed temporarily on March 14th for 9 weeks, to reduce the spread of Covid-19. During this time we developed health and safety protocols and organized PPE making efforts. We are now accepting new members through our new virtual orientation progress and will continue to monitor the local health situation and continue to do our best in helping keep the community safe.
Our Community Covid Response:
We have hosted a handful of video conference events and will be updating our calendar with new ones as they are scheduled. Events we have recorded will be posted here. Check out our Calendar for other digital events as they are created.
If there is something specific you'd like to see, please give us feedback here on digital events.
Community Guidelines and Policies
The membership policies, procedures and benefits, as well as our code of conduct, are outlined in our Member Handbook.
Hours and access have changed due to Covid-19. Hours are currently 7am-midnight. Users must schedule their time using our Skedda system (available once dues are paid). All ATXHS users must wear a close-fitting mask, keep distanced from other members, and new sanitizing protocols apply. See our reopening plan.
Sign up for upcoming classes by going to our Class_List and checking out the upcoming offerings.
