It appears they are expanding to other cities . . . now Seattle, Washington.

I am very pleased to announce to all our friends in the State of
Washington that TechShop is expanding, and one of our first franchise
locations will be in Seattle, WA!

I will be in Seattle the first week of October, and I would like to
invite you and all the other potential TechShop members in the Seattle
area to join me there for pizza on October 4 from 6 to 10 PM. We'll
have the chance to talk about what you want to see at the Seattle
TechShop and what our plans are.

If you have friends or relatives that you think would like to use
TechShop, please invite them to come with you!

If you can come, please reply to this email and let me know how many
will be in your party, and I'll give you the location details.

Thank you, Mike. I look forward to meeting you and discussing our
future TechShop location in Seattle!

Neat, and not at all cheap.  I mean sure it beats paying for even a tenth of all that stuff yourself, but the regulars you're going to meet there are going to generally be modestly wealthy.

900 bucks to use every machine you've ever wanted for every day for an entire year, not bad at all.

I think I would rather pay the 1.2k a year and plastic fees... But, if there is a heaven, then this is what it would look like... Maybe they have a small robotics room? That would be crazy...

I thought 3d printers were down to the 10-15k$ range.
