High Speed Filming Lab Sessions
High Speed Filming Lab SessionsSwem Library Makerspace400 Landrum DriveWilliamsburg, VA 23185
Join the MSE team in the new high speed filming studio adjacent the Swem Makerspace to see how to use and setup a high speed recording. The camera is an Edgertron which can film at up to 30,000 frames per second. We will be looking for user input to see how to better outfit this studio for our communities' needs.
Learning CNC Machining
Learning CNC MachiningMakerspace Center300 Ukrop WayRoom 224Williamsburg, VA 23185
Join the CNC machining user group led by our makerspace students to learn the techniques involved in CNC rapid prototyping. This will cover 3D modelling, toolpath generation, CNC mill / lathe & router operation, and more.
Learning Laser Cutting & Processing
Learning Laser Cutting & ProcessingMakerspace Laser Lab300 Ukrop WayRoom 269Williamsburg, VA 23185
Join our laser cutting & processing user group. Led by a makerspace student, this group will learn and explore the applications of laser cutting and laser processing in our makerspace laser lab. Learn to cut and engrave a variety a materials including plastics, wood, and metals and understand modern manufacturing at a greater depth.Rapid Prototyping at the Ukrop Design Studio
Rapid Prototyping at the Ukrop Design Studio
At the Ukrop Design Studio's satellite Makerspace location a makerspace student will be leading a session every week going through the basics of rapid prototyping using a CNC router, vinyl cutter, and 3D printers. Join us to learn more about the basics of rapid prototyping and to plan out your next build.
Advanced 3D Modelling & Woodshop User Group
Advanced 3D Modelling & Woodshop User GroupMakerspace Center300 Ukrop WayRoom 224Williamsburg, VA 23185
Every Friday we'll host a session in the Makerspace Center (Small Hall) to work with the more advanced features and functions of 3D modelling and design. If it happens to be a warm sunny Friday, we'll switch this up to setup and use the outdoor woodshop. All are welcome to join!Build-a-Brain Workshop (a User Group)
Build-a-Brain Workshop (a User Group)Makerspace Center300 Ukrop WayRoom 224Williamsburg, VA 23185
This MSE hosted session will be project specific and will focus on an ongoing effort to develop a robot to 3D print viscous materials, and generally be able to use syringes and pipettes to automatically dispense or print a wide variety of items at very low cost. The goal is to produce an open-source, high resolution system design for the world to use that is very low cost.
Specifically, the first applications we will we focusing on are the LifeInk Collagen Printing process for printing a nose ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5jIEGiins84 ) and auto-pipetting of fluids.
This user group session will engage with robotics, mechanical design, 3d printing, fluid mechanics, programming, chemistry, biology, and much more. Come join the fun and help us create a great new tool at the Build-a-Brain Workshop.Rapid Prototyping at the IE Hub (Tribe Square)
Rapid Prototyping at the IE Hub (Tribe Square)Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center at Tribe Square249 Richmond Rd.Williamsburg, Va. 23185
Join us in the satellite makerspace at the new Innovation & Entrepreneurship Hub at Tribe Square for demonstrations of rapid prototyping techniques using a laser cutter, vinyl cutter and 3D printer. This will be makerspace student led and follow the weekly 'Rocket-Pitch' entrepreneurship competitions.
