    Student will get familiar with the basic operations of MasterCAM. They will get an overview of the Mastercam interface and will learn how to create geometry and toolpaths. The objective of this course is to give students the foundation on which to build the skills necessary to design toolpaths for MakerspaceCT's CNC machinery.

    Objectives:

    • Draw and toolpath basic parts
    • Learn to import files and tool path imported geometry.
    • Give students a basic understanding of using Mastercam to create toolpaths.

    Laser engraving is a fun and interesting skill that can range from an enjoyable hobby to a lucrative business opportunity. Engraving can be used to personalize everyday objects, such as coasters, keychains, and barware. Lasers can even cut materials with details that are impossible for other tools.

    In this class, you’ll learn the basics about laser engraving technology, the dos and don’ts of laser safety and look at a few examples of the laser engraver’s abilities. We’ll also discuss graphic design basics as they apply to the laser.

    This course is open to everyone from novice makers first starting to create to veteran craftspeople looking to expand their skillset.

    You do not have to be a MakerspaceCT member to attend, but all students must sign up online at the link below and pay tuition to attend this class.

    PLEASE NOTE: Makerspace is an 18+ only facility.

    Photogrammetry is a method of using photographic information to establish points in three-dimensional space. It is an increasingly accessible tool for developing 3d objects without the use of expensive scanning equipment. Students will learn the techniques and software used to allow them to translate real objects into usable digital objects. There are few limitations of scale, very small and very large objects can be captured. This makes this skill appealing to museums, geographical mapping firms, product design, and many more.

    Participants will be introduced to the Arduino Microcontroller, its Development Environment, basic programming syntax, and a variety of inputs and outputs.
    In this course, students will (either themselves or with a partner):
    • Install and configure the Arduino Development Environment (ADE) on Windows, macOS, or Linux.
    • Configure ADE to communicate with an Arduino UNO microcontroller over a USB serial connection.
    Write a series of simple programs to retrieve inputs (switches, potentiometers, sensors) and send outputs (LEDs, buzzer, display).
