Tuesday, October 12, 7:30pm - Hear Hive13's guest speaker from UC's 1819 Innovation Hub
By jim on
The Hive's next 2nd-Tuesday of the month guest speaker this coming Tuesday, October 12th at 7:30pm, will be Ben Jones, Makerspace Manager at The University of Cincinnati's Office of Innovation.
Cincinnati is a great town offering many maker opportunities. Hive13 is excited to see our own member/warden BradW's transition into a maker's DREAM JOB, joining Ben's staff in the Ground Floor makerspace at UC's 1819 Innovation Hub.
Is your personal maker dream bigger than Hive13? Do you want to make a positive impact on society, gain recognition and financial reward for your idea? UC offers a process to evaluate your idea, conduct patent searches, analyze the market and competition to determine its commercialization potential. Their team has contacts for licensing your intellectual property to an existing company or creating a new company. Their Makerspace + Microfactory has the resources to support your dream through the prototyping phase and transformation into the material world.
Members, guests, first-time-walk-ins, and all those interested to learn more are welcome to attend our hybrid (live/virtual) meeting to hear Ben's talk. Come early to see our space, meet folks, and check things out (wearing your mask). Find Us.
Did you know that we have all the tools and materials required to do linoleum block printing at Hive13?
For those who don't know, block printing is a method of printing many copies of a design by carving the design in a linoleum block, applying ink to the block, and then transferring the ink to paper or fabric.
I will be teaching a class on how to do the whole process on Saturday October 16th, 2021, 1:00-3:00PM.
The class will have a materials fee of $5 to cover the cost of a 4" x 6" linoleum block, printing ink, and paper. Please RSVP if you plan to attend so that I can be sure to have enough materials on hand.
Sign up for the class on the meetup page. https://www.meetup.com/Hive13/events/281109164/

Tuesday, September 14, 7:30pm - 3D-Photogrammetry Show & Tell at Hive13
By jim on
Our regular 2nd-Tuesday of the month guest speaker program continues this coming Tuesday, September 14th with past-president and active member DaveS doing a show-and-tell on his recent experiences with large-scale and close-range 3D-Photogrammetry.
Photogrammetry is the science and technology of obtaining reliable information about physical objects and the environment through the process of recording, measuring and interpreting photographic images and patterns of electromagnetic radiant imagery and other phenomena. There are many variants. DaveS has large-scale experience deriving 3D models from drone-made 2D aerial images of the 2701SG building and close-range experience deriving 3D models from cell phone 2D photos of a physical object rotating on a desktop turntable.
Members, guests, first-time-walk-ins, and all those interested to learn more are welcome to come to hear DaveS's talk. Come early to see our space, meet folks, and check things out (wearing your mask). Find Us.
