Important Announcement regarding Reservation Times

2018.8.13

First of all, let us thank you for your continued patronage of TechShop.

 

On July 10th, our reservation system changed. (https://www.techshop.jp/en/news/1206)

In accordance with this, the system for reservation times has also changed.

 

【Previous System】

For one day, only 1 reservation could be made in advance.

Each reservation was for a maximum of 4 hours. Once a 4 hour reservation finished, after taking a one hour break,

if no-one else had a reservation for it you could request a further 4 hours on the same machine at the front desk.

For a single customer, 3 reservations could be held in the system at a time over a 2 week period.

 

【New System】

For one day, you can make 8 hours of reservations on the system.

You must take at least 1 break every 4 hours, and these 8 hours cannot be for the same machine.

In order that everyone has a chance to use the equipment, a single, unbroken reservation of 8 hours is not possible。

(However, as before, once a 4 hour reservation has finished, after taking a one hour break,

if no-one else has a reservation for it you can request a further 4 hours on the same machine at the front desk)

 

Examples of what is allowed:
In advance, make a 4 hour reservation for Laser Cutter#3, then a 4 hour reservation for Laser Cutter#4 with a 1 hour break in between.

In advance, make a 4 hour reservation for the Shopbot, then a 4 hour reservation for Laser Cutter#4 with a 1 hour break in between.

In advance, make a 4 hour reservation for the UV Printer, then after taking a 1 hour break, ask at the front desk for a further 4 hour reservation for the UV Printer (if no-one else has a reservation for it)

 

Examples of what is not allowed:

A single 8 hour reservation for the ShopBot.

In advance, a 4 hour reservation for the UV Printer,  then another 4 hour reservation for the UV Printer with a 1 hour break in between.

As before, for a single customer, 3 reservations can be held in the system at a time over a 2 week period.

 

From all of us here at TechShop, we hope that you find our system easy to use and not too confusing. Please let us know if you have any questions.

Thank you for your co-operation, and thanks for using TechShop.
