CNC Router Operator – Check-out class 12/12 9-Noon

December 4th, 2010 by otto_pjm

Due to the weather the class will be rescheduled sometime in January. The User Guide is ready for review, I’m trying to figure out how to get it posted at the moment.

This class is primarily targeted at TC Maker member, who wish to use the CNC Router. The intent is to give practical step by step use and operation instruction. The public is welcome to attend, but due to the focus on one specific system and the time limitations general questions about CNC systems and tools will only be addressed as time allows.

CNC Router user operation training class, allows you to use the router to work on your own projects

The HackFactory

Sunday December 12th from 9:00 AM to Noon.

What you’ll need:
Nothing really, you may want to take notes, (I hope to have a rational step by step guide put together, but holes will certainly exist) also laptop’s (or classroom PCs) with design tools to create 2D or 3D object maybe useful. (formats such as EPS, dxf, stl, etc)

Non-members and those interested in CNC, but not wishing to run a CNC Router

I intend to have additional Cut, Turn and Burn classes in 2011, and these are the forum for general questions and will deal with the end to end process turning ideas into physical objects.



Intro to Electronics class

March 27th, 2010 by uptownmaker

I’ll be offering an introductory electronics class on 17 April at the Hack Factory.

This will be a basic class, covering amps, volts, ohms, watts, and the relationship among them.  Also covered (briefly) will be batteries and switches, and then we’ll get into some exercises intended to demonstrate concepts and get you familiar with using a multimeter.

Please register at least four days in advance of the class with Eventbrite. I will need to know how many people plan to attend in advance so I can plan for how many parts kits to assemble.  The parts kit will contain all the bits and pieces needed for this class, as well as a breadboard and multimeter, some wire, and a wire stripper.  It will also include some parts useful for other projects and parts that may will be helpful in other upcoming classes I plan to teach.
