TechShop opening in Bakery Square, a playground for Pittsburgh entrepreneurs If the smell of sawdust and the hum of a milling machine are calling your inner entrepreneur, TechShop may be in your future. The Menlo Park company is opening its seventh workshop studio in the country in early March in Bakery Square, across from Google’s office. The 16,000 square-foot space is shaping up to be a lively and inviting one, splashed with color and tall windows that give curious shoppers a peek within. TechShop is a membership studio, offering sophisticated tools and machinery to make products and prototypes, everything from 3D printers to laser cutters and machines for textiles and quilt making.

This shop seems to be a great work space for local artist that want to tackle larger projects, but also a great place for local theaters to gain access to machinery that is costly and hard to maintain. I think it would be a great deal if members of theater shops as well as local theater unions, trained several of their employees on these machines. The over knowledge of working the machines and different and new tool in Pittsburgh could overall raise the standard of work produced here.
