    Makerspace has a Formlabs Form 1 3d resin printer, which can be tricky and delicate to use. Jeff runs two printers for production that are very similar to the Formlabs machine, and has done a good deal of testing to get them to print as well as they can.

    This 2.5 hour class, with 30 minute social period afterwards, will cover operation of the printer, basic maintenance, appropriate materials, general guidelines for file creation, post processing, and some troubleshooting. An informal 30 minute discussion and question period with pizza supplied will follow.

    The class will be July 17, 2019, starting at 7pm, in the Makerspace classroom .

    The fee for this class is $20. This includes printed material, as well as sample 3d printed parts to take home and pizza at the event. The class size is being limited to 20 people, to keep it personal and give everyone time to interact.


    About the Presenter

    Come join us in September for an "out-of-this-world" experience with our very own rocketry enthusiast Jordan Whyte, former member of the Canadian Association of Rocketry.  This is a very rare opportunity to become immersed in the world of sport rocketry. Our workshop has been divided into a series of hands-on classes that will have you learning intermediate rocket building techniques of the pro's along to help you design your very own re-usable rocket from scratch. All supplies, construction materials and equipment needed for your rocket build will be made easily accessible. As an added bonus,  state-of-the-art sensor technology will be available for the gathering of data on your rocket flight which can tether to your smart phone using Bluetooth technology. In addition, we will be including UBlox GPS/GNSS tracking with the long range - low power and  license free radio system which can be used to locate your rocket using real-time satellite data over kilometers of distance. We will be using both single use and re-loadable rocket motors using commercially manufactured Ammonium Perchlorate composite propellant (APCP).

    This event is open to both Makerspace members and members of the general public. 

    Last sign up for this event is on August 20th 2019
