After completing this class, you should know how to:
* Activate the ventilation system * Prep the laser * Prep your material * Navigate the software like a champ * Fire the "laser" * How to log your laser minutes Members may bring their own wood material to be used, or they can use scrap materials found in the fablab.

Game Night!

Folks, I'm setting up a game night on Friday September 30th, starting at 7PM down at the Hive.

I'm planning on bringing a game I'm working on that is a board game version of Mario Kart, I'll also bring Ultimate Werewolf, a deception based party game, and a few others.

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

Solder-thon!

Lorin, our electronics warden, is presenting a solder-thon this weekend!

The hive 13 solder-thon will be this Sunday November 22nd, from 1pm-6pm at the Hive 13 hackerspace.

Come on down to the rootinest-tootinest solder wranglin' rodeo in the O-H-I-O! Old hands and greenhorns welcome. Bring something you've been meaning to solder, mend, or mangle. Get expert advice from solder slinger Lorin Parker (he'd even teach you about scopes and test gear for a smile). Learn and practice assembly, cable making, through hole soldering, hot air rework, SMD, and hang out with some cheesy movies and light ein wenig Licht Lötmusik.

Free for all members. Non-members welcome with donation to Hive13 (limited seating).

New Sidewalk

By dustin on Under Hive13, sidewalk

New Sidewalk

Hello everyone! Our new sidewalk is (mostly) finished! Just a few notes to consider with the new sidewalk:

  • The curb is a bit higher than our old one, so be careful when stepping up over it.
  • The sidewalk was made about a foot wider, so be careful with oncoming traffic.
  • During the spring they will plant trees in front of our building, with one smack dab in front of our door. This will make it easier for prospective members to find the space (look for the trees) but hard for people to find the door.

That's all I have for now, thanks for reading!

Hive13 Sketchduino Demo

By zombiecraig on Under Arduino, Hive13, Projects, Sketchduino

Every week we get together to share project progress and deal with the business matters for the space.  Every so often a special guest shows up to demo something really cool that they have been working on.  That happened at the last meeting when Joe stopped by to show off his Sketchduino. He has taken an Etch-a-Sketch and paired it with an Arduino and a laptop to draw any image.  He gave a demo using one of our logos.  Check out the YouTube video of the demo!

Thanks Joe!  I can’t wait for the Party on the 29th!
