What we're about

This group is for members and visitors to Makespace, a community inventing shed in Cambridge, UK. The meetups are organised by community members both in the space and elsewhere in Cambridge.

To tweak your email preferences for the group, please go to http://meetup.makespace.org/settings/

We would love to meet:

* Community members, enthusiasts, and educational groups who could benefit from a lab in which to work together, network, socialise, and draw on the expertise of others

* People working within local industries looking to innovate in ways that require new skills, equipment and contacts

* Companies and consultancies that support innovation and prototyping, and who could provide training, support, leading to the sale of their services

* Innovators needing to produce physical prototypes to further their ideas

If this could include you, please help us maintain and grow Makespace by joining now, telling us:

* Who you are, and any company/group affiliation
* What you could contribute to and/or how you could benefit from Makespace
* Any other ideas, requirements or suggestions to improve Makespace

Upcoming events (5+)

Droidscript - Coding for Android, Arduino, Espruino and micro:bit (open to all)

Join us to find out how to use Droidscript in your projects. We can show you how to remotely control Arduino, Espruino and BBC micro:bit based electronic projects using your mobile phone via USB, WiFi or Bluetooth. Maybe you want to try building a project based on an embedded Android board such as the "Banana Pi" or "Orange Pi", we can help you with that too :) David Hurren, the creator of Droidscript, will be on hand to help. So if you've already got a project that you want to develop, or if you're just thinking about starting something and would like to know where to start then come along.

Raspberry Pi-makers -- embedded 'puting (open meet)

Makespace classroom

Not just for Raspberry Pi-ers; Arduino and other embedded-type projects also welcome. Whether you're a guru or an interested beginner, you'll be welcome. Bring along a project you're working on, or join in with whatever else is going on. It's a good plan to bring your laptop, if you have one.

Cybersecurity Practical (week 4)

Makespace classroom

This will be a continuation of the series of tutorials based around the workshop materials presented here: https://events.ccc.de/congress/2018/wiki/index.php/Session:ARM_ROP_Exploitation_Intro If this is your first time to Makespace please note that to be let in you'll need to ring the bell at the entrance and I'll come to let you in from there. Further details about this meetup will be posted to the main Cambridge Cybersecurity meetup group in the first instance: https://www.meetup.com/Cambridge-Cybersecurity

SOLIDWORKS Introduction (Members only)

Makespace classroom

This is only open to paid members of Cambridge UK Makespace! This will be a 2 hour bootstrap session in how to use Solidworks. I'll take you through what Solidworks is used for in industry, how to make your own designs, creating something I made earlier and using the render tools. I'll also be showing you how to use the engineering tools of the software as well as how to export designs to 3D printers or CNC machines. You must have Solidworks installed on your Windows laptop before attending, as installation is a long process and it's a huge program! I will not be waiting for people to install the software. Please refer to this thread in the Makespace google group if you have any problems: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!searchin/cammakespace/solidworks%7Csort:date/cammakespace/4fpajOIr-y0/RqFPEBo5BwAJ. Alternatively, email me. Note: You can only install and run Solidworks within Makespace, as that's where the floating licence is based. Please do not use a VPN or remote network to download it, it won't work! A little bit about me - I'm a materials scientist turned design engineer who has invented additive manufacturing machines for the last four years. I also have a fair amount of experience in industrial design! I learnt basic Solidworks when I was in university, but have self taught myself a large amount of the program.
