Welcome to the Pier 9 Workshops!

This is a live catalog of the machines we are currently using in our shops, including model numbers and links to machine spec's. We have 7 amazing maker-spaces on the Pier: a Digital Fabrication Room, Woodshop, Metalshop, 3D Printshop, Project Room, Electronics Shop, and Commercial Kitchen.

We are accumulating links to additional guides, tutorials, and example projects (being produced in our workshop) in the final chapter of this Catalog to help you get started with our machines!

We will keep this Instructable updated as we acquire new equipment or augment what we have. You can address more specific questions/comment/requests to P9Workshop@Autodesk.com.

More information about the Workshop, including how to become a Shop User is in Autodesk's Pier 9 Workshop Instructable.

Awesome resources. I'll pass along to a couple of talented creators I know.

Looks like you have a really nice set up going on and a great place to be creative. Would love to be able to play around, explore and create in such an environment. Particularly like the kitchen as I am a trained chef by trade originally and could have a blast in a good kitchen. Well thanks for sharing and hope you all have a good time in a great work environment and yes i am jealous.
