July 13 (note change of date)- 3D Printing Workshop

 

(Originally scheduled July 6, this event was moved to July 13.) Mr. Nick Conroy will lead a 3D printing workshop. We will have several printers available. Nick will discuss the basics of 3D printing and participants will learn how to create 3D models in Tinkercad. The printers will be available to print models, but the reality is that a single print may take a while, so some prints may need to be left for subsequent weeks. Tinkercad is a free online tool supported by Autodesk. In order to save your models, you need to set up an account at https://www.tinkercad.com  There will be a limited number of temporary accounts set up, but if you can set up an account in advance (click sign up in the upper right corner of the screen), that would help.

Cardboard Home Design/Build/Automation Project – July 14, 21, 28

We’re going to try a larger project starting July 14. The goal is for groups so design, build and automate a small cardboard house.  Time to pull out the Arduinos, Cardboard, Hot Glue Guns, and Creativity! While participants will work in groups and this is a multi-week project, don’t stay away if you can’t make a week or two. If all goes well, we may have the chance to display the houses at the Ohio Valley Museum of Discovery in August!

Disclaimer: Our houses will NOT look the one the image!
