- PLEASE NOTE THAT MAKER MONDAY IS CANCELLED ON OCTOBER 16th DUE TO CLOSURE OF OUR GALLERY -
Maker Mondays, open 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., takes place in the Future of Flight Aviation Center's 3D Makerspace on our Gallery floor. Collaborative makerspaces give you the opportunity to work on your own projects, while sharing and improving your 3D-modeling skills. Print your project on a MakerBot Replicator or Flashforge Dreamer in nontoxic PLA plastic! Makers under 15 must be accompanied by an adult. Drop-ins are welcome.
Maker Mondays is free to Institute of Flight Members and $5/seat to all others, letting you work all the way until close if you desire. Printing costs $1/gram, and most people print objects at about 4-10 grams.
Maker Workshops, Saturdays 11:30 a.m. - 2:30 p.m., are special weekend events that rotate each month. Maker Workshops include starter materials and will introduce you to a new Maker method each month!
For the month of October 2017, we'll be making 3D Printed Buttons in the workshop. This is a workshop for both novices and experienced 3D designers, where we'll be using sketching, measuring, and extruding tools to make shapes at just the right size to sew on as replacement buttons . . . especially skulls and bats for the season! Advanced users will be able to make beveled edges and more complex relief patters on their objects.
November 2017 is the beginning of our holiday workshops! We will be using digital die cutters and design software, with a little bit of math and artistic thought, to tell the computer how to cut out snowflake shapes. You'll find that our die cutters can even make shapes that can't be made by the normal paper snowflake folding methods you've seen before! Of course, you can use the tools we teach you to make some different things as well . . .
