In FabLab Spinderihallerne in Denmark, we would like to change from certification courses (which grant equipment access when passed) to a more flexible “assisted training”. So Ana Cabral suggested a new feature where Fabman could keep track of x number of hours logged in to a certain machine of BOTH the user under training (“trainee”) and another person who has “Trainer status” (ie who has already access to the machine/bridge in question). When x reaches a preset value in Fabman - the user is automatically granted access to that machine/bridge with only their own key (or if not possible at least logged).
Would the bridge firmware allow this feature of “double chip-in”?
We think the feature would be of interest to many Labs because it favors Peer learning.
