    Learn the basic features of LightBurn, essential software that controls both of our new laser machines. This is the software you'll use whether you are quickly cutting out some parts for your project or are fine tuning your complex etching. LightBurn software replaces RetinaEngrave you may have used previously.

    This class will get you started and will help you implement your own creative laser designs. This class is not a substitute for "Intro to the Laser Cutter".

    Who should take this class?

    If you took "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the Full Spectrum Laser, this class can get you up and running with our new laser cutters. If you've taken "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the new lasers and are ready to see how to get more from LightBurn, this class is for you. If you used Inkscape and RetinaEngrave with the FSL and didn't like the software, this class is for you. If you loved using Inkscape and RetinaEngrave, you'll learn how LightBurn fits into your workflow.

    The class covers the basics of LightBurn in the laser cutter workflow. It also covers setting laser parameters for cutting and engraving, importing your designs, vector graphics (line art) vs raster graphics (pixel art), manipulating shapes and tuning images, using the laser libraries, and previewing your work.


    Prerequisite: Laser 101: Intro to Laser Cutter Operations

    Class size is limited to 6.

    Instructor:

    Mike Schrempp is enjoying retirement after spending 39 years in the design and development of computers.  He’s done product development, mechanical part design, engineering management, and architected servers used in big data centers at Amazon and Microsoft.  Now he enjoys making things -- from wood, plastic, metal, food, and Python code -- and showing others some of the tricks he’s learned along the way.

    DIY e-Bike SIG
    There are lots of acronyms in that title, so let’s break it down, starting at the end.
    SIG: Special Interest Group. Basically, that’s a fancy name for a club.
    e-Bike: electric bike. I.e., a bike with both pedals and a small battery-powered motor.
    DIY: Do It Yourself.

    So if you’re interested in making your own e-bike, either from a kit or from scratch, tune in! Perhaps you have an e-bike and want to experiment with some DIY tweaking? You’re also welcome! Or if you’re simply curious, we won’t turn you away either – come take a peek.We’ll meet once a month online, and we might get together once in a while to check out the bikes (and projects) in person. After a short talk, we’ll take questions, problem-solve, and show off our projects.

    Possible topics (subject to change):
    September: Building an e-bike from a kit
    October: Fixing a dead e-bike and turning it into a dual-motor monster
    November: Batteries. Power vs range. Buy vs build. Charging and discharging.
    December: Who needs two wheels? Let’s talk about one-wheel.

    Get introduced to 3D printing in this one and a half hour session. You'll get to see BARN's printers and gain an understanding of how they work and what they can make.

    You will see a computer file get readied for printing in a process called "slicing."

    You'll see the different printers we have and learn about filament, the material 3D printers use to make prints.  We'll start a print and you'll see the printer print.

    3D printing has many uses, ranging from practical to fun, such as replacement parts, mold-making, medical models used in surgery, prototypes and more.  

    Bring your curiosity and questions. You can continue to use the 3D printers at Open Studio where a studio monitor or other member can help you.

    Learn the basic features of LightBurn, essential software that controls both of our new laser machines. This is the software you'll use whether you are quickly cutting out some parts for your project or are fine tuning your complex etching. LightBurn software replaces RetinaEngrave you may have used previously.

    This class will get you started and will help you implement your own creative laser designs. This class is not a substitute for "Intro to the Laser Cutter".

    Who should take this class?

    If you took "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the Full Spectrum Laser, this class can get you up and running with our new laser cutters. If you've taken "Intro to the Laser Cutter" on the new lasers and are ready to see how to get more from LightBurn, this class is for you. If you used Inkscape and RetinaEngrave with the FSL and didn't like the software, this class is for you. If you loved using Inkscape and RetinaEngrave, you'll learn how LightBurn fits into your workflow.

    The class covers the basics of LightBurn in the laser cutter workflow. It also covers setting laser parameters for cutting and engraving, importing your designs, vector graphics (line art) vs raster graphics (pixel art), manipulating shapes and tuning images, using the laser libraries, and previewing your work.


    Prerequisite: Laser 101: Intro to Laser Cutter Operations

    Class size is limited to 6.

    Gamers, it's time to get behind the scenes! In this after-school class, students will learn to make retro-looking video games that they can play on their own handheld game consoles. They will be using Makecode Arcade, a web-based coding platform that enables students to create their own video games including the visual elements like characters and backgrounds and all the rules and mechanics of the game, programming everything using block-based coding.

    During the class the students will be introduced to the coding environment; we’ll talk about different games, taking inspiration from them and then the students will design their own simple game (like Flappy Bird, Squirrel Eat Squirrel, etc).

    When the games are ready, we’ll be downloading them into their own Meowbit codable console (included in the price of the class) where they’ll be able to play their game and show it off to friends and family.

    This could also make a great gift to a friend or family member! This is an introductory class where students will learn how to create a simple game and will acquire skills to make more in the future.

    For more artistic-minded students, it is an opportunity to make visually interesting gaming assets and coding them to make beautiful retro-looking games.

    Please Note: Students will need to either bring their own chromebook or laptop, or they can use one from BARN - please select one of these options during the registration process. iPads or phones will not work.
