    This class is being conducted as an online class via Zoom.

    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.

    Details:

    • Online students will participate via the Zoom video conferencing program. An email will be sent one day before with the Zoom link to join the class. Please watch for this email. For a great video on how to use Zoom, watch this tutorial.

    Learn the basic features of VCarve Pro, a popular program used to make signs, engravings, intricate inlays and imported 3D shapes and models on computer-controlled routers. VCarve Pro is easier to learn than Fusion 360, the other 3D design program taught at BARN, and can be used for projects on both the large CNC router in the Woodworking Studio and the small CNC router in the ETA Lab.

    This class focuses on how to use the program to design a project. You will learn how to create a CNC job, design vectors using basic shapes and basic text, edit and transform vectors, import 3D clipart and models, create tool definitions, create and manage toolpaths, and save g-code for machining on a CNC router. You will not run the router, but this class does qualify you for future studio-specific classes using CNC routers. If you want to go to the next step as quickly as possible, you may wish to register for Making Inlays Using VCarve Pro and the CNC Router, which will be offered the following week. In that class, you will design an inlay project in VCarve Pro and then cut it on the CNC router in the Woodworking Studio.

    Please note:  To take this class, you must have use of a laptop computer with a mouse and a working copy of VCarve Pro 10 already downloaded to that computer. Download a free trial at www.vectric.com. The software requires a PC or a MAC that has Windows installed. There is no time during the class to download the program. If you have questions or run into problems downloading the program, please email WoodClasses@bainbridgebarn.org to contact the instructor for help.

    Details:

    • This class will be taught via the Zoom video conferencing program. For a great video on how to use Zoom, watch this tutorial.
    • An email will be sent to you one day before each session with the Zoom link to join the class. Please watch for this email.
    • Open to beginners. Ages 14+ are welcome.
    • Tuition assistance is available. Click here to apply.

    Instructor: Al Ebken is a retired ocean engineer with many years of computer and computer-aided design experience. (In the picture, he's using the Woodworking Studio's CNC router to make parts for face shields to protect against coronavirus infection. Using VCarve Pro, he also made the hummingbird inlay shown in the top picture.)

    This 2-hour class is designed for makers getting started with the laser cutter in the Electronic and Technical Arts Studio. You will learn how to operate BARN's laser cutter safely as you make a small item.

    The class covers how to prep a design for cutting and engraving on the laser cutter as well as the set-up, settings and operation of the laser cutter.

    Bring a laptop with Inkscape installed. It is optional but strongly recommended.

    Inkscape is the free design software we use with the laser cutter. Click here to go to Inkscape.org where you can download it. There are versions for Windows, Mac OS and Linux. This is not strictly necessary, but will help you get the most out of this class.

    Successful completion of this workshop is the first step toward becoming qualified for independent operation of the laser cutter. It also prepares you for more advanced laser cutting classes. 

    • Class size is limited to 4.
    • BARN will be practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines. Students and instructors will be required to wear masks, wash or sanitize hands frequently, maintain a distance of six feet between individuals, and stay home if they are sick.  More details of BARN wide safety protocols can be found here.

    Join old and new friends on Zoom for some coding this summer and create some computer games together!  

    In this three-session online class you'll get coaching from the instructor and also have a chance to learn from your peers. 

    We’ll be using a program called Scratch. This class is open to those unfamiliar with coding in Scratch, or those who are familiar with Scratch but want to join in the fun of crafting some games with others.

    These are the games we'll be creating:

    Clone Wars - Save the Earth from space monsters! You will learn how to make sprites move using keyboard input, how to clone sprites to make copies of them, and how to use ‘broadcast’ and ‘receive blocks’ to send messages.

    CATS – In this game, you will guide cats to safety and keep them from falling into holes. You will learn how to use a forever loop to constantly generate moving cats, and how to use a repeat until loop to ensure cats follow a line.

    Dodgeball - In this game, you have to dodge balls to get to the next level! You will learn how to use the keyboard to control a sprite, how to use the if, then, else Scratch block, and how to clone a sprite.

    Here is what you will need to have for the class:  

    1.) A dependable internet connection.    

    2.) A computer or tablet able to run Scratch in one of the following browsers:   

    Desktop Compatible Browsers 
    • Chrome 
    • Microsoft Edge 
    • Firefox 
    • Safari
    • Internet Explorer is NOT supported.
    Tablet
    • Mobile Chrome
    • Mobile Safari

    Note: The onlne version of Scratch is preferred, but you may also use an offline version which is accessible here - requirements are Windows10+, Android 6/0+, macOS 10.13+, and ChromeOS.  FAQ about Scratch are found here

    Opening a free Scratch account is optional but recommended since it allows you to save and revisit projects. You may set this up ahead of time on the Scratch website using the 'Join Scratch' link at the top of the page at scratch.mit.edu

    This class has a prerequisite. Please see below.

    Learn to use the  VCarve Pro software program to design and cut inlays on the Woodworking Studio's CNC router.

    Each student will attend three of the seven sessions shown as class dates. For the first session, the full class will meet in the Electronics & Technical Arts lab to review VCarve Pro, discuss inlays, and start design.

    The remaining sessions will be in the Woodworking Studio. The class will be divided into smaller groups to avoid too much waiting in line. The specific schedule will be finalized at the first class session.

    At its second session, each group will review/finalize designs, learn safe operation of the CNC router, set up the projects, cut the materials (walnut and maple), and glue them up. At the third session,  students will cut off excess inlay material and sand the inlays.

    Details:

    • * Open to students 14 years old and older who have taken VCarve Pro for CNC Routing.
    • BARN is practicing safety measures for the health and well-being of all participants, in accordance with state and CDC guidelines.

    Build a classic Fender-style electric guitar in this six-session class held partly in BARN's Woodworkiing Studio and partly in the Electronic & Technical Arts Studio.

    You will learn how traditional luthiers make their design choices and discuss tone wood and pickup choices. Then you will learn  how modern electric guitars are made using computer-aided design and manufacturing tools. The instructors will demonstrate modern guitar design and manufacturing techniques, using CAD software and BARN's CNC router.

    To ensure you go home with a working guitar, you will start with a precision-cut body and pre-cut neck. You will have the opportunity to customize your instrument, including designing and cutting your own headstock shape. You will use the drill press and Festool random-orbit sander as you complete your guitar. You will also assemble and solder the electronics.

    The materials fee includes all the parts, including tuners, pickups, bridge, strings, and other hardware required to build a complete electric guitar.
