We've been fielding a lot of questions on what are breadboards and how do we use them.

This class has a hard limit of 20 participants, so RSVP now to get in! Students must have a breadboard with rails to sign up for this class. If you don't have one you will not be able to participate. Pololu carries them as does rad shack, frys, and many other places.

Channel GRAVITYROAD : Speed Progress of Delta Parts In SketchUp

So, you all have convinced me to have the parts for my delta robots 3D printed rather than continuing to mod plastic spoons and hangers like some third world scavenger. Here is a picture of the original bot made from found plastic bits:

DraftSight is a free 2D CAD program that is compatible with AutoCAD files and commands. We're running a 4 hour course in collaboration with Angelo Pappano at Southwest Career and Technical Academy. Computers with DraftSight installed will be available, however you can bring your own laptop with DraftSight installed. Packages are available for Windows, Mac (beta), or Linus (beta as .deb or .rpm packages). You can read more about DraftSight at:

Members are asking how to go further with Arduino. That's how this class came to be.

This class has a hard limit of 15 participants, so RSVP now to get in!

BuildUps

BuildUps are our concept of an instructor based build. Instructor leads you through each step. Facilitators are on hand should you have any problems. Parts, schematics and printed step by steps are also provided.

Hello world... as this is my first post I'll introduce myself as Sarah and briefly state that my current project is to create an array of mini delta robots to be controlled with various forms of input (like the iphone, wiichuck, exc.)

I finally got a chance to play around with the code and made some progress. Again my goal (for now) is to have the wiichuck thumbstick control the movement of the minature delta robot and the acceleromter inside of the remote controling the color of the RGB LED (which will go on the effector end).

SYN Shop had another good First Friday showing, with a lot of our members stopping by to work in the booth and talk with the public about what we do at SYN Shop.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by.


I had a chance to snap a few pictures here:

In case anyone missed the announcement, the Las Vegas Mini Maker Faire is scheduled for February 2, 2013 and will be held at the Historic 5th Street School in downtown Las Vegas.  It's a great venue (I finally got a tour of the premises this week!) and, depending on how much participation we receive from the maker community, we can grow or shrink the event to fit.
