We had a great time Tuesday night with our members and fellow maker group Hive 76 members!
We kicked off the 5-hour make session with food, introductions, and some brainstorming for collaborative projects that we were excited about completing during the event.
Hive76 members got some demos on our machines such as our Trotec laser cutters, Roland CNC mill, and our Brother Digital Embroidery machine. Snowflakes generated from evilmadscientist were laser cut and engraved with a holiday-themed message from Hive76 and NextFab Studio. Some were wired with LEDs in our electronics lab.
As projects were being discussed, we gave demos on our PCB fabrication process, soft switch construction, and brass CNC engraving. One of our members and a Hive76 member had an idea for a “chair jousting” target apparatus (yes, it is exactly how it sounds), and make it, we did.
Thank you to all of our members who came in and to Hive76 for a great night of making and mingling!
Also, thank you to musician Jack Myers (http://www.myspace.com/jackmyersmusic) who played live music for the event.
Hope to see you all again soon!
