Game Night Friday, Jan 27th

Folks, I'm setting up a game night on Friday January 27th, starting at 7PM down at the Hive.

I'm planning on bringing a few lighter games and a few more involved games. I'll have something for 3 players and I believe Ultimate Werewolf can have up to 63 players.

Feel free to bring any other games you might want to play as well when you come down.

Introduction to the BFR 9000

It seems that folks really want to get familiar with our CNC equipment. So Lorin Parker, our electronics warden, will also be offering an introductory course on the same day with Brad to familiarize people with the basics of our CNC. This to help familiarize you with the CNC and demystify things about it, not an certification class. The date and time will be Saturday January 9th from 10am to 12pm. Please RSVP here.

Things that Lorin will cover:

  • Safety Safety Safety! Lorin will show you how to not kill yourself or lose a hand
  • What the CNC is and is not
  • What CAM and GCode do
  • What Mach3 is and isn't
  • Information about the machines themselves
  • We'll use auto desk fusion360 to make some gcode and do some cuts with Shapeoko and the big CNC. Emphasis on best practices and how to get started with CAM.
