Terms and conditions of equipment reservation
  • If your membership is not yet active (for example, it has expired or has not been started yet), you will need to activate your membership at Front Desk before you can request a reservation.

  • Members cannot reserve and operate more than 1 piece of equipment simultaneously.

  • Equipment may be reserved from a minimum of 1 to a maximum of 4 hours (due to their popularity, Laser Cutters and 3D Printers have a maximum time limit of 2 hours)

  • A single piece of equipment can be reserved up to a maximum of 4 hours per day with a minimum reservation time of 1 hour, e.g. 4 reservation slots of one hour each per single piece of equipment.

  • Only 3 reservations may be made on any single piece of equipment per week.

  • When the booking is made, 1 hour lead time is required before reservation starts. If member A is using a machine without reservation, member B cannot reserve it immediately and ask member A to leave the machine. 1 hour heads up must be given to member A to finish up. Front Desk staff should be able to over-ride this rule if the machine is not being used and the member needs to reserve it immediately.

  • You may NOT start your reservation early. You may be allowed to continue working after your time has expired if no one has the equipment reserved following you. DO NOT make assumptions, check with staff for availability of time extension.

  • You may NOT work more than 8 total hours per day on any piece of equipment and a 1-hour rest break is strongly suggested between all 4-hour reservations.

Cancellations, Late-Shows and No-Shows
  • Lots of other members share this equipment with you, so please do not abuse your reservations privileges. If you can‘t make your reservation, please cancel it from your reservation list page or call us at 02 558 8624 as soon as you know, so we can make the time slot available for other members.

  • If you are more than 15 minutes late, without notice, your reservation is forfeit and made available on a first come first served basis. You may reschedule.
  • Member reservation privilege may be suspended for excessive last-minute cancellations, no shows, no calling, or calendar manipulation. This will result in a 1-month reservation suspension.
