Hi everyone!

I just announced the Meet the Teachers meetup for next Thursday (20th).  

Meet the Teachers

If you have some time on Thursday, please stop into the shop and say hello.  Ask questions about classes that we have scheduled and what classes we have in the works.  If you have a class that you would like to teach but have questions about the content or the procedure, we would like to discuss it with you.

Come by the shop and say hello to some of the people who are teaching or will be teaching classes at SYN Shop. We would like to start an open dialog with our community to find out what people would like to learn, experience or teach.

So I finished up the stilts and have been walking around in them. They are interesting to move in as they really change your center of balance. No video yet, but I'm working on it. Video demo is here. Here's the remainder of the build… All pictures are here.

Sugru is a moldable, self setting rubber. There are 1001 uses from fixing things, to improving existing things to making whole new things!

SYN Shop is going to host our first Instructables sponsored build night!

We'll be getting together to explore design and fabrication with Tinkercad and Autocad's 123D Design and Make software packages. We'll look into designing for 3D and have a brief look at how you can realize your designs on the 3D printers or or the laser cutter using 123D Make!

Savannah Peterson is taking Shapeways on tour and her first stop is Downtown Las Vegas! Join us at SYN Shop this Sunday from 3-5 PM for a talk about Shapeways, 3D printing technology, and what you can do to get started. Following the talk, we will hold a Q&A session and a meet and greet. Bring your Shapeways or 3D printed projects to show off or bring your sketchbook and consult with others about what you'd like to create. Stick around for drinks at Denny's afterward if you like!

Hi SYN Shop!  We're working on our education curriculum and looking for people to teach classes.  We're interested in finding out what our community would like to learn and what things our members are willing to teach.  
If you're interested in teaching a class, let us know.  No experience needed but we want you to be passionate about the subject (this helps a lot).  Below is a description page on how to participate:
