Come to Open Lab nights. Four nights a week we have volunteer members managing the space. Hosts are knowledgeable about most if not all of the available tools. They are great for answering questions and pointing you in the right direction.
Meet the members. Our membership has a wide range of interests. Find out what projects people are working on. Talk to them about what you're working on. There is a lot of knowledge in our membership and that includes you.
Get training on the tools. Are you interested in rapid prototyping, wood working, screen printing, the CNC? Some tools require more formal orientation. Ask a host or post to the discussion list.
Make mistaeks. 3D prints fail. Laser cuts aren't what you expected. You are going to crash the CNC. It happens.
