Sunday Afternoon Art and Tea

Ace Monster Toys

Join us for a leisurely afternoon of drawing, painting and tea at AMT. The light in the coworking room is most excellent. You can use your favorite medium and just have fun. You don't need any special training. We have a small light table for tracing. And a small selection of art supplies... really small. We recommend you bring a little too if you need more than pencils and sketching paper... Also if you just want to make buttons I will bust out my button maker ;). I will bring a selection of teas. If you would like bring tea snacks to share.

3D Printer 101 and Hangout

Ace Monster Toys


This class is in Room 214. You're invited to come and hang out with the 3D printing crowd at Ace Monster Toys. We have a low-key gathering every two weeks. Everyone from newcomer to expert is welcome. AMT membership is not required. We start with 3D printer 101. This training is now required for AMT members who want to use our printers. It takes about 30 minutes or so. You may leave after the training if you don't want to hang out, or you may skip the training and show up later. The remainder of the meeting is unstructured; we tend to do whatever the attendees feel like doing. For example: Design for 3D printing can be daunting. Sometimes we plug in the projector and demonstrate the basics of CAD for 3D printing. Got a simple project in mind? Maybe we can bring it to life! If you're having trouble with your printer, bring it along; we'll get you going! (Contact the steward if you think the issue is more extensive than can be handled at a hangout). Have a new project to show off? We'd love to see it! Have you built your own printer? Bring it for show-and-tell! Did you _know_ you can build your own? We'll show you what's involved. So grab your enthusiasm and your curiosity, and join us!
