Maker Faire, TechShop, Lasers and 3D Doodling

by justinemendoza

The fella’ and I are super excited to start taking classes at TechShop. We payed the San Francisco shop a visit the other day, and a very friendly guy showed us around the metal shop, wood shop, computer labs, work tables, sewing machines, laser cutters, 3D printers and so much more jaw-dropping coolness. It’s almost overwhelming how much can be at your disposal with a membership, luckily you can chip away at the machines with the (required) classes.

I can start collecting some of these neat ‘Skill Badges.’

Also in the line-up is the Maker Faire next weekend. I’ve never been before, but will definitely report back. I’m watching some videos from last year’s faire to get an idea of what it will be like. This video is great because it shows the artist/designer using a Shopbot, which is available for use at TechShop.

Checking out this year’s Maker Faire map to formulate a game plan… I’m WAY too excited!
