ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

Fusion 360 is a great software for designing 3D models with multiple components for assembly. This workshop will give you a brief overview of the Fusion 360 software from Autodesk and teach the basics of creating 3D CAD models within the program. By the end of the session you should be able to create 2D sketches with accurate dimensions, extrude those sketches into 3D models, edit your model to make changes, combine different parts to make an assembly and learn how to export your design for manufacture.

 

SKILLS LEARNT

Create 2D Sketches in Fusion 360

Extrude sketches into 3D parts

Create and Problem Solve a Multiple Part Assembly

 

YOUNG MAKERS

This workshop can be suitable for teenagers from the age of 11 - 16 yrs old, if accompanied by a supervising adult.

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

Arduino is the electronics prototyping platform behind the explosion in recent years in interactive artworks and makers’ projects. With this workshop you will make your first tentative steps into the world of sketching with hardware, and programming. You will work in pairs with our Arduino Uno kits. A great way to try out Arduino before buying your own board!

 

If you would like to use your own computer, please pre-load it with the Arduino IDE which you can get here: http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software. If you would like to bring your own Arduino board, please feel free to do so.

 

SKILLS LEARNT

Connecting an Arduino to a Basic Circuit

Introduction to Writing Arduino Code

Making an LED Flash On and Off

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

Want to have a go at 3D printing but don't know where to start? Now's your chance! We will guide you through the process of making a 3D model in Sketchup, setting it up for printing using Cura and then printing out a small example print on our Ultimaker 3D Printers.

 

3D printing is a game changing process of making things - allowing us to print out 3D objects on demand. This workshop will allow you to explore this fascinating field which increasingly has applications in product design, medicine, space exploration and beyond!

 

SKILLS LEARNT

Basic 3D modelling

Choosing settings for 3D modelling

3D Printing File Formats and Problem Solving 3D models

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

Soldering is a great skill to have under your belt, very handy for even the most simple electronic endeavours, and also for getting under the hood of electronic products if you need to adapt or fix them.

 

In this workshop we'll teach you how to solder from scratch, concentrating on through hole soldering a light sensitive or moisture sensitive electronic circuit that you can take home and use.

 

SKILLS LEARNT

Reading a basic Electronic Circuit

Soldering Components to a PCB

Problem Solving your Connections

ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP

The laser cutters are the easiest and quickest machines in MAKlab to get going on. In this workshop we'll give you a full induction on our laser cutters and talk you through the different features and settings. We'll guide you through setting up a very basic artwork for cutting a small keyring with your artwork on it to take home at the end of the day.

 

We will be using Inkscape for editing artwork. You are welcome to bring your own laptop to work on. If you'd like to use Inkscape, it is free and downloadable here: http://www.inkscape.org/en/download/.

 

SKILLS LEARNT

Basic Vector Software Skills

Choosing settings for Laser Cutting versus Laser Etching

Choosing Appropriate Materials for Laser Cutting
