- Please keep the door between the Fab Lab and the Commons area closed. Doing so will help ensure that when the heater or air conditioner is running, the Fab Lab maintains an appropriate temperature. Also the AC/Heater for the office space isn't anywhere near efficient enough to cool/heat the main shop area, and we don't want to spend a hojillion dollars letting it try.
- Please don't use the FabLab as a shortcut between the commons area and the eLab when someone is working in there. There's not a lot of room, and having a parade go by while you're arguing with the printrbot isn't all that much fun.
