This past weekend some NESIT members worked on laser cutting 3D models. They used slicer for Fusion 360 to slice the model, and our 60w Epilog laser to cut the layers from 36×24 sheets of cardboard.
Stop by NESIT for our open house from 7pm to 10pm. Check out the newly organized wood and metal workshops!
Do you need to eat? Enjoy making simple, delicious recipes?
Then you may want to attempt some beer bread! It’s a super-simple recipe if you’ve got an oven and one US beer-quantity worth of beer.
Join us at NESIT on October 19th from 7:00-10:00 PM for an introduction to the world of leather crafting. The workshop’s focus will be on learning how to hand tool designs on plain vegetable tanned leather which can be tooled and dyed, stained, or painted.
Once this skill is learned it can be used to make a large range of projects such as wallets, purses, belts, bolsters, and notebook covers. Tools and a practice piece of leather will be supplied for the lesson at no charge.
This instructional workshop will be lead by Kevin of Solofalcon Leather. Stop by NESIT Makerspace and learn how to create objects of art out of leather.
Have you ever wanted to experiment with lighting up a costume? NESIT will be helping you make your costume glow next week on 10/17/16.
Neopixels, EL wire, and old fashioned dumb LEDs hooked into an ATmega driven Arduino are great ways to make your costuming light up and we’ll have a supply of each. Drop by and check out all the lighting mayhem just in time for Halloween.
Please sign up on our Meetup event (if possible) if you’re planning to attend.
