This class will teach you techniques for designing objects with 3D panel based construction using Google/Trimble Sketchup. For the purposes of the class, I'll be walking you through creating a design for a cell phone holder for your bicycle. The techniques discussed work well with cardboard, acrylic, wood, plywood, and other panel type materials.

Rebecca wants to hold a night where everyone works on craft projects at the shop. Come on down and work on stuff! If people like the idea, we'll start holding this weekly.

One of our awesome members, Dan Harden, brought in an old Macbook screen and had a go at etching designs into it using our laser cutter. The SYN Shop logo was etched at 3% power, 100% speed. We think it came out great as a test, what do you think? I really want to etch my own Macbook now.

Thanks Dan for taking video footage of the etching in progress!

Blinking, fading, and color changing lights are a standard for eye catching goggles. This being said, I decided to change it up a bit and make a set that would engage the wearer in the production of sound.

I was searching through DIY project ideas when I found an instructable on how to make an Arc Reactor from misc plastic pieces (Make an Iron Man Arc Reactor). The coiled wire and blue lights were so appealing to look at that I decided to give the new laser cutter a try and make a set of lenses (for a new pair of goggles) that looked like mini ‘reactors’.
