Wiki Update-A-Thon!

//

Saturday–THIS Saturday, March 21st–from noon to 4pm!

Join us to update our Wiki!

From Sean M, the organizer of the event:
All are welcome to contribute. No specific skill level is required – in fact, for some things the more unfamiliar you are with something the better reviewer you make!
Please bring your own laptop, with wireless, if you can do so easily; I’d hate to have more willing hands than keyboards. I am hoping to bring a couple of extra laptops to let people edit articles as needed but we’ll also have some of the random PCs around the space (that said, if someone wants to laser or vinyl cut, etc, please evacuate the PC so they can use it for its primary purpose). Also, if you just want to read existing wiki articles and suggest changes, you can definitely do that easily on most tablets or phones.
There will be punch & pie*!
Thanks!
*Punch and Pie may actually be random pastries/baked goods and various sodas due to logistics.

I can haz knowledge?

cat-computerHave you always wanted to learn how to do that one thing at LVL1?

Maybe you wanted to try one of our 3D printers, or the vinyl cutter, or the table saw.  And you simply didn’t know how to do it.

We have a NEW feature for you!

Just send us an email at learn@lvl1.org!

We want to know what YOU want to know.  By sending a message to that email, you will have instant access to a team of first-class makers ready to assist you in getting the help you need.

Similarly, if you want to teach something (that means anything) we will help you arrange a workshop at your convenience.  Let us worry about the logistics while you enrich our space with a skill to share.

LVL1 is an educational institution.  Part of that education comes from making, hacking, and tinkering–the other part comes from sharing what we know.

So don’t hesitate: when you need to know how to do something at our hackerspace, email learn@lvl1.org!

Free Autodesk Fusion 360 Workshop – 1/14, 7-9pm

Fusion Workshop Banner

LVL1 will be hosting a FREE Autodesk Fusion 360 workshop on Wednesday, January 14th, from 7 to 9pm. Show up with your laptop (Fusion 360 pre-installed, please!) and prepare for a knowledge bomb.

Fusion 360 is a new 3D CAD Design package, integrating parametric mechanical design, with easy-to-use modeling tools.  Fusion 360 makes it easy to collaborate on projects, share CAD data, and build your project quickly and easily.  If you’ve used other CAD tools, you’ll find the learning curve for 360 to be pretty shallow. With integrated DFM and CAM tools, it’s super easy to export from Fusion 360 and bring your designs to life using LVL1’s 3D printers or milling machines.

Best of all, Fusion 360 is FREE for students, hobbyists, and startups.

Tanner Reid will be conducting this class from Autodesk HQ. Download Fusion today, and learn how to use it on January 14th at LVL1.
