Fab Lab - Open Build Session - 3:00 to 6:30 p.m.
The MCC-BTC Fab Lab is offering a special afternoon/evening open build session for Fab Lab members and non-members.
Yardstick Catapult Build
We have several people asking to build a desktop catapult. For this project we are using yardsticks, wooden dowel rods, a rubber band and plastic spoon. We will work on skills to make mortise and tenon joints that hold the catapult together. We are offering this project at the MCC-BTC Open Build session and will be repeated at one of our regular HMS Beagle Build Night
Show & Tell - 7 to 9 p.m.
Last month's TinkerCad presentation had to be rescheduled to this month. We have Dan Green and son coming out to show us around TinkerCad, this is a free 3D design web app. The program is capable of taking your designs and outputting them in a format that can be printed up on a 3D printer like the hign end printers at BTC or MakerBot and Mendel printers.
Show Us Your Project
As usual, bring your project out to show what you've been working on and share with our Show & Tell participants.
July Build Nights
We are offering the Yardstick Catapult project at the MCC-BTC Open Build session and will be repeated as a regular HMS Beagle Build Night.
