  • Tuesday Open Meeting & Miniature Painting Night

    Null Space Labs

    Welcome to Null Space Labs! Come by on Tuesday nights for our open meeting. We eat, drink, and hack all the things! Learn about programming, electronics, hardware hacking, lock picking, and more! === MINI PAINTING NIGHT! === The last Tuesday of every month is now mini painting night! What's a mini? A miniature figurine. Think Dungeons & Dragons miniatures, board game miniatures, or just cool looking art miniatures. This event is BRING YOUR OWN STUFF (BYOS)! NSL does not provide anything besides a workspace for those painting. See below for recommendations on what to buy if you are new to the hobby! BUY A COMPLETE KIT This is the easiest option. The "Reaper Miniatures 08906 Learn To Paint Bones Kit" is $30 and includes 3 minis, brushes, and paints. See https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00NTMC49G/ (OR) BUY ALL THE INDIVIDUAL THINGS If you don't want the kit, you can buy all the things individually. Keep in mind you may need extra stuff for other types of minis. At the very least get: brushes, paints, and minis. Brushes: The "#1" brush is the standard size used for mini painting. Paints: There's lots of mini painting sets out there - the popular brands are Citadel, Vallejo, Army Painter, Game Color, Formula P3, etc. Low quality acrylic paints are OK but they will be harder to work with (TLDR mini paint is "soft body" acrylic, most acrylic paint you buy at the art store is "heavy body"). Minis: There's a lot of options, but start with https://www.miniaturemarket.com/ and http://www.reapermini.com/Miniatures/Bones. We recommend to get a one-piece plastic minis to start with. You can worry about assembling fancy glued together or metal minis once you go pro. Get minis of any type you want! Extra stuff for non-kit users: For lower quality minis you may need to do some prep work to remove protective coatings and etc before painting. Check if the minis you buy need to be primed before painting (otherwise the paint won't stick). If so, buy an aerosol can of primer and make sure it is designed for plastics (or metal, if you have metal minis). EXTRA PAINTING SUPPLIES Some extra things you might want. These are optional Paint Palettes https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074CX7DZC/ More Brushes https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07L4ZBGCC/ LOCAL SUPPLY STORES? If you're looking for a local place in LA to get minis & related supplies we recommend Knightware in Hollywood. If you want budget painting supplies go to your local Michaels or Blicks. ============================= Where do I park? / How do I get inside?

  • Intro to Computer Aided Design with Fusion360

    Null Space Labs

    *** IMPORTANT NOTES! *** This class has limited seating and requires registration via Universe. RSVPing on Meetup is not the same as buying a ticket! Universe registration includes access to this class and all class materials. GET TICKETS HERE: https://www.universe.com/events/null-space-labs-intro-to-computer-aided-design-with-fusion360-tickets-burbank-2WJK8B *** IMPORTANT NOTES! *** ============================= READ THE IMPORTANT NOTE AT THE END REGARDING FEES Ahoy! Have you ever seen a 3D printed part and wondered, "How did they make that?" Want to update your drafting skills from pen and paper to something more versatile? Or maybe you just need a simple laser-cut sheet that's dimensionally accurate Perhaps you need something made on a CNC machine? (We won't get to that point in THIS class, but stay tuned for precisely that class. ) Come join us at your favorite neighboorhood hackerspace and learn how to do exactly this, AND MORE 3D CAD has become infinitely more accessible to the average Joe in the past five years, so now it's readily available to us Regular Joes who don't have access to a corporate-sponsored seat of Solidworks. We've taught this class a few times at NSL in the past using both Onshape, and Fusion360, and I've been cranking away pretty hard on a Fusion design for myself lately. With all this info fresh in my short term memory (as well as the past decade of my work life), it seems like a good time to impart some wisdom on y'all. Starting from a basic 2D sketch, I'll show you tools, tricks, and gotchas I've picked up over the last decade of using these tools. Parametric, relational, "Feature-based" models can be quickly and easily created, changed, updated, and adapted as long as you can visualize what you want the software to do and don't paint yourself into a corner. "Design intent" is an important topic we will spend a good deal of time revisiting. While a 2D sketch may be good enough to produce a PCB, sometimes you need to see things in 3 dimensions. Perhaps you need a custom enclosure for your RasPi? Sometimes, with one simple click you can 3D-ify your model to see how things fit on all sides, without scrapping a single part in the process. At this point, we will touch on how to deal with various "solid bodies" and how they interact with one another based on context. If you have any sample parts you'd like to have used as a teaching tool, I'd be happy to go through the process using your example so you can walk away from the class with a design in hand. WHAT DO YOU NEED? A somewhat recent vintage computer with Fusion360 installed and licensed to you. Licenses for hobbyists are free, so don't sweat it. Mac or Windows is fine. You Linux freaks can use Onshape in the browser for the first half of class for the basics, but I'm afraid you'll be lost when we get to assemblies due to differences in technique. If you've only got a dekstop, that's fine, we can hook you up with a monitor and keyboards and such (but maybe you want to bring your own) 3 button mouse is ESSENTIAL. READ: DON'T FORGET A 3 BUTTON MOUSE. We have a few, but not 15, so bring yours just in case. If you do some research ahead of time by watching some videos and tutorials on Fusion FEES: I will refund you $20 cash the day of class for simply showing up. Knowing who will absolutely be there will allow us to give you the best class possible. All proceeds are donated to NSL's operating funds so we can keep the lights on and keep teaching you cool stuff.

  • Open Capture the Flag (CTF) Day

    Null Space Labs

    Open Capture the Flag (CTF) Day Abstract: Participate with an experienced group of hackers in a "Capture the Flag" (CTF) competition. In a CTF, you attempt to solve a technical hacking problem from a variety of categories: software exploitation, web hacking, system penetration, networking, forensics, cryptography, and more! The goal is to find the "flag" - a hidden string of words contained in the challenge. Find the flag, get points! You're sure to learn something along the way. We will be working on the De1CTF (https://ctftime.org/event/837) and CyBRICS CTF (https://ctftime.org/event/836) Please note: If this CTF is too challenging for beginners, we also have a number of beginner CTFs that we can work on. What to Bring: * A laptop to hack with. * A fighting spirit. Pre-Requisites: * There are no specific prerequisites for this class. Any previous experience with hacking, programming, and computer security will be extremely helpful. ============================= What does the class cost? This event is free, but we accept donations online and in-person. Please donate if you'd like to help support the space and see more of these events in the future! ============================= Where do I park? / How do I get inside?
