|Arch Reactor - St. Louis||
Full members must also contribute 2 hours of community service at the facility a month.
|Receives multithousand grants from local engineering business||Community seemed active and healthy, hobbyist oriented (vs. business product fabrication oriented)||3 Stories and a basement for $1000 a month. More space than they could use, an entire floor in their warehouse left empty.|
|ATX - Austin, TX||$75 base membership fee||Added co-op space for additional $100+ on top of $75 base. Provided a small cubicle which seemed to be primarily utilized by members whose remote businesses required them to have a physical desk, whether they used it or not. They mentioned their large format laser cutter was something they sold time on to professionals, and it was a cash cow.||Community seemed more business product fabrication oriented. It felt like there was a tension between the business maker lifestyle members and the hobbyists.||Multiple air conditioned rooms with the option to expand. Seemed like they were able to get a good place to rent by not being in central Austin. Large shop floor.|
