HICapacity's last day at MIC is August 31st

Hello everyone! I’ve been posting some updates on Facebook but wanted to get an official release out there. Our last day at MIC will be August 31st. We anticipate that the space will officially reopen at iLab the week of the September 11th. We will be announcing the exact day soon. The gap week in between will be used to setup and organize everything.

We are working hard to purge the current space of trash and e-waste. The majority of the items we have decided to keep have already been moved down to iLab. Most of our larger furniture such as shelving and lockers have been removed. We are trying very hard to have everything out by the end of the month. If you have personal items at the space we ask that you take it before Thursday.

If you still hold a HICapacity key card please make arrangements to turn it in. If you are unable to make it to Manoa please let someone know and we will try to get it from you. Those of you who have access to other suites in MIC may keep your cards.

We are looking to plan a open house for our...

HICapacity is Moving Again!

Hello everyone! We’ve been a little quiet as of late but we’re still kicking! Today we have an exciting announcement that will shape the next chapter of HICapacity. It was about 3 years ago that we announced that we were moving to MIC. Today we’re officially announcing our departure from the Manoa Innovation Center. But where are we going you ask? We’re partnering with the iLab at UH Manoa and will be moving in with them! We will be located on the UH Manoa campus close to campus center.

You might be wondering why we decided to do this partnership. We’ve always dreamed of attracting student makers and helping to mentor them as they grow. This is the perfect opportunity to connect with them. We will be sharing the iLab space so students may be in the lab during school hours and we would encourage everyone to mingle with them. HICAP will have a small room to use for its equipment but we are free to use the common area. There are tables and chairs (and sitting areas) that can be used when using laptops.

With all of our spaces there is always the question of parking and access. At...

Using CAD to Make Functional Objects

Fusion 360

In this workshop, we will learn to create 3D CAD models in a tools like Solidworks, AutoCAD, and Fusion 360 which incorporate our expectations about how those models will function in the real world. We will discuss how to use parameterized geometry to connect what we see on the screen to what we want to fabricate and use. In addition to using standard CAD tools, workshop participants will use an experimental CAD tool created by researchers at Carnegie Mellon University.

This workshop is recommended for anyone with previous 3D modeling and/or fabrication experience who want to get more out of there 3D modeling experience. We will specifically be working with Autodesk Fusion 360 and request that all participants have this installed prior to the workshop. Installation is available here: and recommended tutorials can be found here: Participants should bring a personal laptop (PC or Mac) to the workshop.

Presented by Megan Hofmann Where: iLab @ UH Manoa Building 37 When: Tuesday August 15th @ 6pm
