“One night group build” The idea is everyone suggests a build-that-night sized project, discussion, people offer up their skillsets, vote for the favored project, finally as a group – we pitch in and build it that night!
We only have from 7pm until 11pm to complete whatever we decide to make. It has to be done from start to finish in that time. We’ll be working as a group, employing our many skills: from computer programing to woodworking to sewing to welding.
Start dreaming up your ideas now, and bring a few!
Next event: July 19th 7pm – Design-your-own-mug! Using a heat press transfer machine.
Thursday June 28th 7:30pm – No need for CamBam/Fusion 360/etc if your part is simple. Just a few main commands you can type into a text file and run.
Going to cover usage of the CNC mill and the CNC lathe, and the same G-code process can also be used to write for the Shapeoko. Just covering the basics to keep it easy…but you will be able to make any part (that the machines are capable of) using combinations of things learned.
We may have time for writing a few examples if you want to bring a dimensioned part drawing or CAD file (keep it halfway simple for time reasons).
Non-members and children welcome and encouraged!
Printed notes will be provided but you might want a pen to add your own notes.
Join us at the Appleton Makerspace Thursday June 21st at 7pm-10pm as we cooperatively battle space foes in Artemis.
“Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulator lets you turn your living room into the bridge of a spaceship. You and your friends assume the jobs of Captain, Helm, Science, Communication, Engineering, and Weapon Control. Together you operate your ship and defend the sector from evil aliens.”
To participate, you’ll need a laptop/desktop computer running Windows. Licenses for Artemis are already purchased.
Next event: July 5th, 2018 at 7pm – One night group build! Brainstorm, vote, build.
