Upcoming Events

This Tuesday is 3D Print Club.  Every week, we’ll get together and participate in a freestyle design session. In a freestyle, participants simply design what they want to. There will also be various design challenges each week if you’re looking for inspiration, and an instructor will be present to offer advice and otherwise help troubleshoot as you create and print designs. Instructor-supported software (and software available on the Makerspace computers) includes Tinkercad and Fusion 360. If you’re an experienced 3D designer, bring your laptop and favorite design software! We’ll also spend time cleaning up our prints and discussing what goes into making the best print possible. This event runs as a 3 month session. At the end of each session we’ll collect our favorite and best prints and have an open showing.  

Tuesday also features Intro to CNC Routing, an overview of our incredibly versatile Shopbot. Found in our woodshop, this tool can be used for everything from creating your own furniture to 3D wood sculpting. Join us from 6- 9, this Tuesday.

We recently added many classes through the month.
