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!

Shapeoko build night

//

Shapeoko

On June 2nd, 2014 it was announced that LVL1 won a Shapeoko2 CNC machine kit in the Inventables 50 States 3D Carving Machine Giveaway contest.

The Shapeoko is a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machine which in its default configuration uses a light-duty rotary tool as the spindle. It is a 3-axis machine; able to move the mounted tool up/down, left/right, and forward/backward under computer control with some measure of repeatable precision.

This Friday night (8/22/14) we are going to start building this machine. Drop by at 8 pm if you are interested in helping. It should be fun and a great opportunity to learn a little about CNC hardware.

Meanwhile, here is the LVL1 wiki page for you to read: wiki.lvl1.org/Shapeoko_CNC_build

Hope to see you there!

LVL1 is proud to be participating in the first Louisville Mini Maker Faire!  Join us and over 50 other makers for a day of FREE, family friendly fun!  We’ll be on the 800 Block of East Market from Noon until 6.  After 6, join the crowd at Nulufest, happening on the same day on the 700 block of East Market.

We’ll be bringing 3D printers, fire breathing ponies, mental melon blasting devices, and much, much more!  Build a power tool drag racer, and test your mettle against others from around Louisville.

It’s going to be a great event. Help show that Louisville is a Maker City by showing up to Louisville’s first Mini Maker Faire!
