Please excuse the video quality but the following is a recording of a presentation about many applications of 3d printing.
A 6-month Intro to Making Course
MakeHaven is for
The perfect place to create and get feedback on your early prototype or just engage with a community of people working on the frontiers of technology.
Connect with others who share your passion. Share the skills you have developed expand your horizons.
Experiment with new medium and challenge your ideas to create something unique. Hone woodworking, sewing or printmaking skills.
Multiple Fused deposition modeling printers which lay down plastic layer by layer to build your designs.
CNC Wood Mill
A large platform which an attached router which can be controlled by a computer to cut out intricate custom designs.
Several systems for harnessing the power of a CO2 laser to cut into or engrave wood. These can be used to make incredibly precise works of art.
Full workshop with all the equipment needed for most personal projects including: table saw, band-saw planer and hand tools.
A place to work on electronics platforms like Beaglebone, Raspberry Pi or Arduino. Or to solder a basic circuit board together.
The basic equipment for standard home brewing as well as a custom built computer controlled home brewing machine for the advanced home brewer.
A three axis fully enclosed metal mill, capable of cutting aluminum or steel with precision.
Sewing and Craft
Sewing machines, crafting equipment and a computer controlled embroidery machine.
Machine that heats and allows you to form plastic sheets into specific shapes. Great for making costumes, molds or a housing for your drone.
We will email you about upcoming events and workshops.
I just stumbled across this project on the hack-a-day site and remembered that there were a few members who have asked about something like this in the past, so I figured I post this just to see if there is any interest in building one of these, and who would be there to help with the project...
Was finally able to complete a print of the infamous shift knob this AM. Used Adam vice Eve this time and tried something completely different. I mounted the (white) filament on Eve and strung it across to Adam. It was much easier to monitor the slack and several times detected overwraps that would have not have been seen behnd the machine. I suspect that even minor tension on the filament will cause the type of problems I have been having. A good solution might be to mount the reels on the wall where they can be better observed and controlled. You definitely can't walk away and hope
Just wanted to let everyone know we have several updates to the HERMS project page. Have a look to get up to speed.
We're still refining the process, but we're also making beer. I was considering scheduling a brew day to introduce people to the project, and get them some time using the machine.
I'm forming a small project team to customize a remote control car.
Specifically, I propose we design a car from chassis up and fabricate much of it using the makerbots and laser cutters. I'd like to recruit someone(s) with electronics expertise to help with custom circuitry.
These cars are really cool. I've built a 1/18 scale electric that hit 60. We could exceed that, if the team is determined.
Perfect "vehicle" to learn more about Inventor and the makerbots. I'm thinking weekly meetings, but I'm open to ideas. I'm also flexible on project goals.
