90 Days until the Grand Opening!

Lots of developments at AssenWorks this month and things are just getting started!

Framing of the space is almost complete, with electrical starting within the next week. The first two pieces of specialty equipment, the CNC Router and small 3D printer have been specified and will be ordered in the next week. The rest of initial equipment orders have been drawn out and are awaiting for confirmation via the questionnaire prior to order next month.

We will be releasing a preliminary membership and sponsorship video on the website in the upcoming week, which will detail the features of membership and the benefits of sponsorship. This will be followed by our AssentWorks Usage Questionnaire which is designed to help us understand more about what potential members are looking for the most in a Prototyping and Industrial Design shop. The questionnaire will be available via the web site and will also be distributed by our supporting and advising partner organizations.

Many thanks to the awesome folks and great neighbors at SkullSpace, Winnipeg's first, only and best HackerSpace. The assistance on renovations and build out has been greatly appreciated. For those who don't know what SkullSpace is, check out or come out to a regular meeting every Tuesday at 6pm @ 125 Adelaide or a Hackathon on the third Saturday of every month.
