What we're about
Upcoming events (4+)
We are hosting a weekly 'Work From TinkerMill" day.
Lots of space and high-speed internet access.
Thursdays from 9:00 - 10:00 AM-ish to 5:00 PM-ish, any and all are welcome to drop by and grab a chair, an electrical outlet, some internet, a bit of coffee and maybe (if someone remembers to bring some) a doughnut or bagel.
Open to the Public.
This is just a way to get out of the home office and mix with some like minded tinkerers. Maybe grab lunch with a few people you normally wouldn't meet. Bounce ideas off folks to see if your brilliant insight is, indeed, brilliant.
-$50 for members
-$75 for non-member
This is the Tinkermill Blacksmiths safety course at Tinkermill and is required for you to use the forge at Tinkermill.
Please wear non-synthetic clothing and shoes that cover your feet. No sandals, please. We will go over why in the class.
We will be reading this safety document at the beginning of the course and then moving onto the forge area to practice.
Class fee for TinkerMill Members is $20.00
Class fee for Non-Members is $25.00
Payment will be handled at the class.
In this intro class you will learn the basics of using TinkerMill's Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) 3D printers. We will begin by covering the basics of operating the FlashForge 3D Printers and Simplify 3D software. We will then move on to setup of the printer which includes changing filament, preheating, and finally starting a print. After that we will explore basic equipment maintenance that you may need to do before starting a print.
Learning how to 3D print objects is surprisingly easy and empowering. You can 3D print replacement parts, design your own toys or tools, or use it for art. You can even 3D print flyable rockets!
Join us every other Thursday evening to discuss your robotics projects (or even to propose robots you would like to build!)
Some robot project ideas:
- Autonomous Vehicles
- Bi-Pedal/Quadra-Pedal/Octo-Pedal Robots
- Wheeled/Tracked Robots
- Manipulator Robots (single arm, multi-arm)
- Domestic robots (lawnmower, clothes folding, debris vaccuming, etc)
- Food robots (I like pizza...)
- Specific Function Robots
- Cat Annoyance robots
Got another idea? Propose one! ALL SKILL LEVELS WELCOME!
COVID Update: As much as we would love to see many faces, masks are MANDATORY for this event per public health order. Please adhere to the maximum attendee limit. Do not bring more guests than planned. If you plan on attending/not attending, please update here so others can join us.
