Wow, I haven't posted here in a while, but I wanted to show a few things that I've been working on for the shop and some personal projects.

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:

Tinkercad is back and we're teaching a class on it!

For those of you who do not know, Tinkercad is this awesome web based 3D CAD program. It was slated to go offline later this year. However, Autodesk just bought it and it will remain online. Yeah!

It is by far the easiest to use 3D CAD program that we have encountered.  Additionally, you can export the file to a format that can be used on the Shop's 3D printers.
