Recycling is at the heart of many maker projects. This project will be saving this robot arm from the scrap yard and will provide fun and education for many. We have an older CRS Rotics 5 axis articulated arm that has no controller. (for now) The goal of the first phase of this project is to develop the electronics to control the 5 axis of DC brushed servos on this arm. The second phase will be getting the kinematics and system controls developed to allow for use of the arm in x,y,z and joint modes. The goal is to achieve this using open source technology with a modest budget.
We are looking for members to join and get involved in this exciting project.

A member created this very impressive granite heart that is also a candle/torch as a Valentines day gift for his wife. The pipe is actually embeded and sealed in the rock! There is no wax in this candle. It uses lighter fluid.
Carbide Create from Carbide 3D is a FREE non cloud based 2.5D CAD / CAM software.
This software is great starting point to learn CAD and CAM.
Learn about polymer clay and it's applications in jewelry! Renee will be teaching the millefiore technique where beads are created by "stacking" different colors of clay to create designs. The workshop is open to teens and adults. $15 per person covers all supplies and tools needed to create a couple dozen beads. 1/2 hour demonstration and 2 hours of "make time" You will go home with a finished piece of jewelry! If you love beading with polymer, I will have kits available for purchase so you can continue making beads on your own!
Come Join us for a great work shop.
