This Meetup was canceled.
If you’re an inventor, an artist, a creator, a designer, a maker, then come along and come hang out and make awesome things with like minded people in a sociable and engaging environment! All skill levels welcome, the only prerequisite is an enquiring mind and a love for making things.
The 3D print area:
We’ll have a couple of 3D printers running. If you are a 3D modeller and have something you desperately want printing please let us know in advance as there’s a chance we could print your design on the night (depending on how big the part is). If no-one has anything in particular they want printing we'll more than likely print some quadcopter parts or a nic-nac for someone top take home with them.
We'll also have a 3D print pen which everyone is welcome to have a play on.
The laser cutter area:
We’ll have a glowforge laser cutter running in one of the rooms. We’ll be cutting/engraving some bits and bobs to demo what the cutter can do. We also thought it’d be cool if people go home with a little trinket so we’ll be offering everyone the chance (time dependant) to make their own customised keyring should they want to.
The robot area:
We’ll bring along an ozobot. If you haven’t heard of them before they are these awesome little line following robots which can be programmed by changing the colours of the line they travel over. It’s a great little introduction to programming for kids and to be honest it’s also quite fun as an adult :)
The show and tell area:
If you have something recently please consider bringing it along and putting it in the show and tell area, you never know who you might inspire!
We'll also bring along an Arduino starter kit so if someone wants to have a play and create a simple project they’d be able to do so.
I'll also bring down some micro quadcopters and some FPV goggles which you can wear whilst I take you on a tour of the space.
If you have an ongoing project/build then bring it down to work on, that's what this is all about! The only limiting factor is that we currently run the meetup in an office-type environment so if you need to bring down tool just bear in mind excessive noise/mess. If you’re in doubt just check with me prior.
