Its time for the next open meeting of the Alamance Makers Guild!

The topic for this meeting is Digital Fabrication, in specific I'll (Ben Harris) be giving a demonstration of CNC Machining with my ShopBot Desktop CNC Router. I'll start with some basic principles, explain how the machine works, show off the design (CAD/CAM Software) i.e. Partworks (a ShopBot Branded version of V-Carve Pro from Vectric) We'll end up by cutting something out with the machine.

(A couple of volunteers to get to the meeting early at 6:30 and help me unload the machine from my car, and then reload it again at 9:30 are highly appreciated!) Its not extremely heavy, just a little awkward and may have to go around a couple of corners.

On our agenda:

Presentation: Digital Fabrication with the ShopBot Desktop
Discussion/Questions on CNC Machining

If Time: Discussion of Future Plans (for those interested)

Question: Pizza from MiMi's for Dinner worked out really well last time. Would folks like to kick in $3 to do this again? Would you rather do a pot-luck with hors d'oeuvres and light snacks? Or do you not want to eat at all? (please answer the question when RSVP'ing)

Please RSVP (going/not-going/number of guests) so we'll know how to plan for this meeting.
