This is the regularly scheduled member’s meeting. Agenda and additional information is discussing in the protospace-administration forum.
This is the delightful yet challenging metal lathe course put together by John W. For information, check out the discussion groups, or talk to John or Byron.
The next Laser Cutter/Engraving course is on the calendar. The course itself takes about 90-120 minutes. Depending on how late you want to stay, there may be an opportunity for a some projects and cutting after the course.
To take the class you must have taken the basic safety training and be a member in good standing (i.e. paid-up) at the Space. Probationary members (non-vetted), “Friends of Protospace” (Friend Members) and Members who have not yet completed the new member orientation and general safety course may attend but will not receive a computer account for the laser. Young members may attend if accompanied by an adult.
The absolute maximum number of participants is 12. We will run the course if there are at least 4 sign-ups.
Note that this training is specific to the use of the Laser hardware and LaserCut 6.0 (the software that runs the hardware). It does not cover the CAD programs typically used to do the drawings. For the most part, any program that can give you a DXF file will do.We will do classroom work, demonstrations, and discussion. If you would like to have a chance to cut your own project, please bring a ready-to-go DXF file on a memory stick (or put it on a one-drive/google-drive/dropbox or similar web-accessible cloud). Also, if you have specific material you want to have a go at, bring a chunk along.
There is no charge to attend, but attendees must coordinate the delivery of at least one cup of coffee to the instructors. (Snacks and more coffee are up to the participants.)
Sign up instructions have been posted in the discussion and administration group lists.
