    In March 2020, McNeel & Assoc. released the 6.0 version of their software Rhinoceros3D for Windows or Mac. This glitch free, 3D modeling software has been an industry standard for boat design, interior design, model making, furniture design, and jewelry design for 30 years.

    This class, taught by a McNeel & Assoc. certified Rhino trainer, Gary Dawson, is a Level I Training for the Rhinoceros3D CAD application, suitable for beginning to intermediate users of Rhino 6. Students will learn to use the command pathways necessary to utilize this software in creating files for use with BARN’s 3D printers, laser cutter, lathes, and CnC routers.

    Continuing additional classes in applying Rhino 3D files to run each different tool in the Jewelry, Metal Fabrication or Electronic & Technical arts studios will be required. Please watch studio calendars or subscribe to studio email alerts for upcoming classes by clicking here.

    This class is an opportunity for you to learn how to work with metal in a variety of ways!  Over the course of four afternoons you will be introduced to the tools in our sheet metal and metal machining shops and create some cool metal items to take home.

    Half of the class time will be spent learning how to make shapes on the metal lathe and refining your skills to make a functional brass spinning top. The other half will be spent learning and practicing how to use sheet metal tools such as the jump shear, roller, and spot welder so you can complete a cool artistic sculpture. 

    Summer is a great time to gain new skills you can't learn in school.  We hope you can join us!

    Learn how to work with metal this summer, or build on your metal-working skills! You'll use your imagination to combine scrap parts to make a 'pet' to take home - a dog, cat, bunny, turtle, or whatever you dream up.

    In this four-day class, you'll begin with a safety briefing in our welding and sheet metal shop, then you will learn how to use all the tools you'll need to prepare and build your creations: cutters, grinders, vices, and spot welders.

    Next it's time for you to practice your skills and make your own unique creations with old silverware and other scrap metal parts that have been collected.

    This is a great chance to have fun and learn some new skills this summer!
