MaKeyMaKey

MaKeyMaKey   The MaKeyMaKeys are just one of the TLC's awesome DIY electronics kits! Come in on maker nights or schedule an appointment to get the full tour! What is a MaKeyMaKey? A MaKeyMaKey is an easy-to-use circuit board that fools your computer into thinking any items wired to the MaKeyMaKey are buttons on a keyboard. This means you can use fruit, play-dough, or even pencil lead to create your own game, software, or PC interfaces! Contact the TLC This email address is being protected from spambots.

3D Printer: Makerbot Replicator 2X

Makerbot: Replicator 2X What is a 3D Printer? Much like a normal 2D printer prints2D on flat (2D) paper, a 3D Printer creates 3D objects. Just as there are different kinds of ink, 3D printers use different materials to produce objects. The Makerbot Replicator 2X prints with ABS plastic, extruding it into layers a bit like a robotic hot glue gun. Where do I start? First you need something to print. You can go to Thingiverse and pick out something you like. Take a look at the top in the URL where it says "http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:NUMBER" and write down the number after "thing:". For example, check out our plaque made in the TLC by James: http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:647449 You can see in the URL that this object is thing number 647449. You can also create your own 3D model from any of the many 3D modeling softwares available. We tend to use Blender but you can use any modeling software as long as you save your file as a ".stl." How much does it cost? It costs $1 to use the printer and an additional 5 cents per gram. So the heavier the object is, the more it will cost, though most prints are under $5. Skills & Prerequisites No skills are required but 3D modeling skills can help you make exactly what you want. Contact us to set up an appointment if you're interested in learning basic 3D modeling skills. 3D Printing is an amazing tool and can be used in more ways than you think. Check out MAKE Magazine, Thingiverse or the TLC Twitter page to see what's new in the world of 3D Printing! Important things to keep in mind Unfortunately, the TLC is not able to design something for you, we can only print .stl files found online or made by you. You must be with the printer the whole time your object is printing. Prints can fail and having an eye on it is the only safe way to operate the equipment. This occasionally means that prints must be restarted. The larger and more dense the object is, the longer it will take to print. Some prints can take several hours, so be sure your time is flexible on the day of your appointment. You can e-mail us the thingiverse URL and we can give an estimate on the time it might take. The TLC does not allow patrons to print weapons, simulacra of weapons, or parts of either of the aforementioned. Although we do our best to have the printers available on maker days -- Tuesdays and Thursdays -- it's best to call ahead and schedule an appointment, as the printers are fairly popular and frequently in use.

3Doodler The 3-Doodlers are on their way! Costs and policies related to the 3Doodlers will be updated here as soon as they've arrived. What is a 3Doodler? A 3Doodler is a bit like our 3D printer's "hot ends." That is, it's a pen-shaped plastic-melting device that creates a slow stream of cooling plastic. It's a bit like a hand-held glue gun, except we use it to create projects out of plastic instead of sticking pieces together. Contact the TLC This email address is being protected from spambots.
