Metrix Create:Space — Part techshop, part hackerspace, part coffeeshop. Open to the public on a busy retail strip in Seattle, Metrix Create:Space asks “What can you make?” Metrix has been a source of ongoing support for our project, from our first laser-cut poster to helping us re-solder a motherboard in the midst of a computer meltdown. Our gravity-powered coin sorters have seen many revisions in the Metrix laser cutter; we may have never found a working design if it hadn’t been for the input from Metrix staff and customers alike!
