Insane Pittsburgh Asset: Tech Shop Opens in March

Holy Crap- What is all this stuff? Chances are you don't have all this in your garage or basement workshop.

See images I took here: (Had trouble embedding slideshow)
And here:

Wanna Weld?
Vacuum form Plastic?
Laser cut wood?
Laser cut plastic or steel?
Coat, paint or airbrush in a place with a super high tech ventilation system?
Use three-d printers?
Use other high tech printers?
Water cut thick steel or Marble?
Just use really great Power Saws and other tools?
Work in a place without worrying about blowing every fuse in your house?

There's more stuff I didn't mention I'm sure, like high power computer workstations and CAD programs.

Think, you can't use this stuff? Take a class and learn. (Use of many tools requires classes)

TechShop is a community based workshop and prototyping studio on a mission to democratize access to the tools of innovation. Our seventh and newest location, TechShop Pittsburgh will offer the Pittsburgh maker community more than 16,000 square feet of workshops equipped with world class tools and equipment, computers loaded with design software featuring the Autodesk Design Suite, hundreds of classes each month, and the support and camaraderie of a community of like-minded-makers
 While Tech Shop is rolling out across the country, Pittsburgh is currently one of only 7 open so far. (DC Location on the way)
