Join Instructor Stan Hanel as he gives an introduction to electronics in a class that mixes hands-on and lecture. We will study electronic sensor technologies and how they can be integrated with wearable fabrics.
This class can be taken standalone: or part of our continuing series, and is open to all skill levels. 

The “hands-on” part of the class will  be a “wearable tech” DIY project!  Build a wearable butterfly with two wings that oscillate by using a shape-memory-metal actuator.

This is a weekly discussion night for people who want to learn how to use CAD / CAM software to create models and objects that can then be cut on the laser cutter, Shopbot or printed on the 3D printers.

We find many new members lack the skills and need a place to start. This discussion group will be an open forum for people to come ask questions, share new techniques and express their love of all things CAD / CAM.

What’s new this month

We will be having elections for the board members on January 30 at 2pm so please come to the board meeting and cast you vote for the people that will guide the shop through this year.

The exhaust vent for the welding area and the laser cutter have been ordered and should be installed in the next month or two.
