Months ago, at the Cambridge Hackspace, Udita made custom-fit shelving for her apartment. There must be some “Murphy’s” law for making shelving for a closet, because next thing we know she’s taking a job on the West Coast. She generously donated her tools to the CHS. THANK YOU UDITA!!! Here they are pictured
And here is the latest project she did on the West Coast. She says she misses us and I hope that new project trips “Murphy’s” law again and brings her back! Her tools will be waiting!
Cambridge Hackspace and Fab@CIC on the road!
At District Hall’s inspireHER Cafe Night.
Check it out.
Last night Kurt tried out the Mankoti e180 3d printer. This was from his email:
Jack Greenfield of FAB@CIC stopped by the Cambridge Hackspace Media Studio to talk about his re-engineering of the DIY Gumball Machine.
A friend of mine, Emily, is a yoga instructor. I’m helping her get some images for her Instagram account and she’s helping me get the studio set up.
This was the first shoot. The light in the upstairs studio is simply amazing. When Omar first showed Ed and I the space I knew we wanted it. It has not disappointed.
Here are some images from the 2nd session
She also allowed me to test a special defocus control lens from Nikon, the 105mm/f2 DF.
A first-glimpse of Harnek’s Makerfleet “farm” of 3d printers. Very exciting!
We used the laser cutter to create templates out of 1/8-inch MDF which can be used to pencil in cut lines for wood carving. The templates can be used over and over and help the woodworker visualize what they’re doing.
Mark used Adobe Illustrator to create the templates. Like Inkscape, we ran into some teething pains getting RDWorks to read the dimensions we wanted. We did this by setting the scale in AI to MM, before saving as DXF.
AI doesn’t have a native single-stroke font (Inkscape does!). So Mark just drew letters by hand and used them to etch each spoon for identification.
Yinette used the laser cutter at the Cambridge Hackspace to make her delicate art of roses. Here she is standing with her father and one of her works of art. Her art is currently on display at the Somerville Library.
She had a great turnout!
Thank you Yinette for showing the beautiful possibilities of what the laser cutter can do!
