If you need to talk to us about particular CPUs, their names are

the ten metallic elements from 24 to 33 in the periodic table:
 +
chromium, manganese, iron, cobalt, nickel, copper, zinc, gallium,
 +
germanium, and arsenic (Cr Mn Fe Co Ni Cu Zn Ga Ge As).  Each CPU
 +
is labeled on the front with its name.
-
= What can and can't you do in the room? =
+
=== Hardware ===
 +
Each CPU consists of a quad-core 64-bit AMD 4100FX, in a Gigabyte
 +
GA-970A-UD3 motherboard, with 8GB DDR3 RAM, and an nVidia GT216GL
 +
(Quadro 400) graphics card.  The motherboard will accomodate up to
 +
32GB of RAM, if that turns out to be necessary.  Each machine also has
 +
160GB of disk, shared across various partitions and operating systems.
-
== Allowed activities ==
+
We have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed
-
* You may eat in the [[#Kitchenette | kitchenette]] half of the room.
+
Each computer has USB ports on the front and back panels. Most are
-
* You may teach or hold meetings in the classroom half of the room.
+
USB 2.0 (red connectors), but two on the back panel are USB 3.0 (blue

+
connectors).
-
== Disallowed activities ==
+
If you're using these computers for hardware development, please be
 +
careful.  If you're rolling your own USB hardware and there's any
 +
chance of miswiring your USB connectors or having unusual voltages on
 +
them, '''use a USB hub''' between your device and the computers!
-
* You may not do anything that generates significant quantities of fumes.  The classroom has zero ventilation; that's what the paint room is for.
+
=== Software ===
-
* You may not paint, even if it doesn't generate fumes.  It's almost impossible to clean up paint; that's what the paint room is for.
+
-
* You may not use spray mold-release agents ''anywhere'' in the room, especially ones for silicone.  You risk destroying the hard drives in the computers.
+
-
* You may not hammer on the computer/sewing desks ''at any time for any reason''.  You risk destroying the hard drives in the computers.
+
-
* You may not put open-top beverage containers---including bottles---or any food, on the computer/sewing desks.  That's what the dining tables are for.
+
-
* You may not remove extension cords or outlet strips from the room, even if they're not currently plugged into anything.  The classroom is not your private stockroom.
+
-
* You may not put anything that isn't food in any kitchen appliance; see [[#Use of materials | below]].
+
-
* You may not cut directly on any surface without a cutting mat or other suitable protection.
+
-
* You may not use ''any'' of the computer hardware in the room to test other hardware.  Ask us for hardware that is more expendable.  See [[Computer Lab#The computer lab is not for testing equipment | here]] for why not.

What's in the room?

Kitchenette

  • Tea & coffee are member-stocked in MPR1.
  • The shelves and cuppoards are not a pantry. No food (except Tea and Coffee) is to be stored.
  • Anything you leave out in the kitchen area will be considered common, including your dishes.
  • Treat this space like a shared kitchen with lots of roommates: it is expected that you clean your dishes immediately.

Sink

Located on the counter. Please do NOT pour hazardous materials down the sink!

Cleanup

You are responsible for washing any dishes you use. We do not have any janitors. This is a member maintained facility. You may leave them in the drying rack. Please do not leave messes on any table when you're done.

Fridge Etiquette

We have two refrigerators in the Multipurpose Room 1. It is up to you to put your name and the date on your food (including frozen food).

  • Unlabeled (food without a Name AND Date), stinky or food older than 2 weeks will be thrown away.


Janitorial Closet

Cleaning Supplies (Broom/Dust Pan, Mop, Lysol), Soap, Trash liners, Wet Floor Signs, Breaker Box, Vacuums, Buckets, and Toilet paper you can find in this closet.

Sink

This slopsink consists of a faucet at chest-height and drain in the floor. This is an excellent place to dispose of materials that are not safe near food areas. Note that such materials must still be ones that are both safe and legal to pour down a drain! Anything corrosive, hazmat, etc must be handled appropriately.

Trash and Recycling

  • We generate a lot of waste. We rely on volunteers to take out the trash. Please help out.
  • The waste disposal page has detailed information
  • Trash Map


Computers

Computers are for members, day pass users and students. Guests should not use the computers.

If you need to talk to us about particular CPUs, their names are the ten metallic elements from 24 to 33 in the periodic table: chromium, manganese, iron, cobalt, nickel, copper, zinc, gallium, germanium, and arsenic (Cr Mn Fe Co Ni Cu Zn Ga Ge As). Each CPU is labeled on the front with its name.


Hardware

Each CPU consists of a quad-core 64-bit AMD 4100FX, in a Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3 motherboard, with 8GB DDR3 RAM, and an nVidia GT216GL (Quadro 400) graphics card. The motherboard will accomodate up to 32GB of RAM, if that turns out to be necessary. Each machine also has 160GB of disk, shared across various partitions and operating systems.

We have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed

Each computer has USB ports on the front and back panels. Most are USB 2.0 (red connectors), but two on the back panel are USB 3.0 (blue connectors).

If you're using these computers for hardware development, please be careful. If you're rolling your own USB hardware and there's any chance of miswiring your USB connectors or having unusual voltages on them, use a USB hub between your device and the computers!

Software

The computers in multipurpose room have licenses to a variety of useful programs. Some of the more notable programs include:

CAD/Graphic Design

  • SOLIDWORKS 2016
  • Autodesk
    • 123D Make
    • Alias Design
    • AutoCAD 2016
      • Electrical Module (2015)
      • Mechanical Module (2015)
      • Raster Design (2015)
    • 3ds Max Design 2015
    • Backburner 2015
    • Inventor 2015
    • Recap 2016
    • Showcase 2015
    • Peoduct Design Suite
    • Meshmixer
  • LibreCAD
  • Draftsight 2016
  • HSMWorks
  • Matter and Form Scanner Software
  • Sculptris Alpha 6
  • ShopBot Software
  • VCarve Pro - Shopbot Edition
  • Wings 3D
  • IonMC
  • KiCad
  • InkScape .91

Document Processing/IDEs

  • LibreOffice 5.0
  • Notepad++
  • Python 2.7

Miscellaneous

  • PuTTY
  • FileZilla
  • KDiff3
  • WinSCP
  • VLC

Storing files

In general, do not assume anything you leave on the machine will survive.

If you need to store files, you have two choices:

  • Use your own local storage, such as a flash drive or USB external disk.
  • Use our public file share, which is available to all members over the network.

Projector

You can hook the projector to one of the classroom machines, or to your own laptop. If you're planning to use your own machine, please drop by well before your presentation and ensure that your laptop and the projector will get along. In particular, many Mac laptops require special converters, and you can't just assume that we'll have the right one, or that it hasn't wandered off. Please bring your own, and please test in advance. Nothing kills a presentation faster than watching someone struggle with a projector.


Electrical circuits

The back and side walls of the classroom side of the room have a string of quad-box outlets on them. Every pair of quads is a separate circuit. (In other words, there are 8 outlets per circuit.)

If you rearrange the room please return the room to the default configuration for teaching (3 rows of desks).

We have a computer lab in the Multipurpose Room, consisting of ten identical computers in roll-around desks available for use by instructors, their students, and our members.

Desks

The computer desks were designed by Gui ages ago. The cut files are here.
