A 6-month Intro to Making Course

 

MakeHaven is for

INventors

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.

Hobbyists

Connect with others who share your passion. Share the skills you have developed expand your horizons.

ARTISANS

Experiment with new medium and challenge your ideas to create something unique. Hone woodworking, sewing or printmaking skills.

 

 

 

The tools to make anything! 

 

MakeHaven is a full makerspace and Fab Lab. 

 

3d Printers

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.

Laser Cutter

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.

Wood Shop

Full workshop with all the equipment needed for most personal projects including: table saw, band-saw  planer and hand tools. 

Electronics Workbench

A place to work on electronics platforms like Beaglebone, Raspberry Pi or Arduino. Or to solder a basic circuit board together.  

Home Brewing

The basic equipment for standard home brewing as well as a custom built computer controlled home brewing machine for the advanced home brewer.

Metal CNC

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.

Vacuum Former

Machine that heats and allows you to form plastic sheets into specific shapes. Great for making costumes, molds or a housing for your drone.

Scott Petersen

The Experimental Musical Instrument Workshop is a series (2-3) of workshops designed to:

Scott Petersen

Following work on Friday I (Your Documentation Dictator Scott Petersen) will be getting beer, going to the space, and ordering pizza.  While consuming these delicious and life-sustaining substances I will be feverishly labelling everything in sight.  You are welcome and encouraged to join me.  Following the labelling, we can all head out "on the town" to continue celebrating those things most dear to us: beer, pizza, and labelling (oh, and our friends and fellow makers!)

Make Haven
Join other interested in microprocessors and electronics. We will do brief introductions and brainstorm projects before breaking out to do group work and learning. Will likely chip in on a pizza. 
 
Bring your electronic kits/toys/tools.
 
All skill levels welcome.

3d Printing Problems on the Replicator 2's

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

HERMS Progress

Hey MakeHaven,

Just wanted to let everyone know we have several updates to the HERMS project page.  Have a look to get up to speed.

http://makehaven.org/project/herms-heat-exchange-recirculating-mash-automated-brewing

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.

Remote Control Car build

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.
