Maker Master Class: Brian Brown; Lunch & Lasers! (Wed. 24 Apr, 2019 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm)

Work with Brian Brown, Manufacturing Engineer, on our industrial Shared Manufacturing equipment. Attendees will allow up to 1.5 hours, from 12-1:30 for a lunchtime design/build hands-on workshop. Pizza and refreshments will be provided, for a quick meal in between workshop activities. Participants will spend the first 30-45 minutes familiarizing themselves with a web-browser-based design tool, such as Autodesk’s TinkerCAD, Inventable’s EASEL, or other such software. A stencil-font and shapes will be used to design a small keychain with initials, name, or other small symbols. Participants will learn to navigate a design environment, familiarize themselves with file-types, and use naming conventions and cloud-based file management to keep their designs organized. In the latter portion of the workshop, attendees will join Brian Brown in the Shared Manufacturing area, their designs will be organized onto a cut-sheet, loaded onto the large laser cutter, and cut from stainless steel. Participants will take their keychains with them.
