What we're about

We are a hacker space located in Washington, DC. HacDC members improve the world by creatively rethinking technology. We break, build, and occasionally abuse technology in the pursuit of greater knowledge about how it works and repurposing it to build new things. Our shop is located in the Columbia Heights neighborhood of DC. Visit our site at http://hacdc.org for more details.

3D Thursdays & Open House

HacDC

3D Thursdays is one of HacDC's two weekly open house gatherings. Come check out our stock, modified and custom-built 3D printers and multi-tools. Learn about Free / Libre Open Source Software (FLOSS) tools for designing and printing 3D objects from scratch. Or just stop by and check out the space! In particular, OpenSCAD and ImplicitCAD are the tools we know best. Both are 3D design software applications for 3D printing that uses a text-based object-oriented language very similar to C++. For example (in OpenSCAD): // HacDC passport stamp handle // factor = 55.0 / 240.0; rotate_extrude($fn=200) union() { difference() { square([120 * factor, 30 * factor]); square([110 * factor, 20 * factor]); } translate([0, 30 * factor, 0]) difference() { union() { square([80 * factor, 190 * factor]); translate([0,[masked] * factor, 0]) square([65 * factor, 20 * factor]); translate([60 * factor, 163 * factor, 0]) circle(r = 40 * factor); } translate([120 * factor, 100 * factor, 0]) circle(r = 60 * factor); } } See http://hackaday.com/2016/04/18/implicitcad-programmatic-cad-built-with-3d-printing-in-mind/
