Rules & Tools

Hatch resources can be broken down into several categories. Each category has its own set of guidelines and may require specific training before use. This is not an exhaustive list of equipment and materials available at Hatch. Our materials are intended for learning; if you have a specific project that requires specialized materials, please bring them with you.

  1. 3D Printing
  2. Arts + Crafts
  3. Computers + Printers
  4. Electronics + Robotics
  5. Hand Tools
  6. Laser Cutter
  7. Sewing + Textiles

  1. Only trained volunteers or staff may login to the 3D printer computer on behalf of a maker and must supervise the entire print setup in the print manager (Simplify 3D).
  2. Makers must fill out the 3D Printer Usage Log before starting their print. The supervising volunteer or staff must sign their name on the Usage Log.
  3. Makers must be present when their print begins. Prints are started on a first come, first served basis.
  4. No print is guaranteed. Hatch volunteers and staff may not allow a print at their discretion. Hatch reserves the right to stop a print if it fails.
  5. You may not save files on the 3D Printer Computer, please use a flashdrive/email/dropbox/etc.

Note: Hatch only prints PLA filament. Maximum print size is 6"x6"x6".
