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.

Gary Dawson is owner of Gary Dawson Designs, an online custom design operation that was featured as a “Best of the Best” by Instore Magazine. Dawson has nearly 45 years experience in creating designs that capture the personalities and stories of his customers. My "thing" as an instructor, is that with over 40 years of designing and manufacturing, I'm quite keen on passing along the skills it takes to generate digital designs that can realistically be produced. I keep "Manufacturing in Mind" in my instruction!
**This workshop will be conducted via live streaming with Zoom.**
This is a joint BARN and Battle Point Astronomical Association (BPAA) class. In this four session class students will get an overview of “What’s out there” and “How do we know”. The class format will be some general comments followed by one or more ‘curated' video's followed by discussion.
Instructor: Peter Moseley
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!
Remember to wear close-toed shoes in the Metal Shop at all times. This is a strictly enforced safety policy. Thank you.

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!
Participants must wear natural fiber clothing, long pants, closed-toe shoes (natural fiber or leather), no stretch fabrics, and long hair tied back. This is a strictly enforced safety policy. Thank you!
Instructor: Bob Mathisrud. Bob was cross-trained in many trades as a stationary operating engineer, for over 20 years, at national food baking companies.
This is a joint BARN and Battle Point Astronomical Association (BPAA) class. In this four session class students will learn the parts and function of telescopes, and how to use them to observe celestial objects. Class format will be interactive and will include demonstration and commentary by the instructor with ample opportunity for participants to ask questions; curated videos demonstrating important concepts and techniques; and discussion. Participants who have telescopes are encouraged to have them on hand during class and share them on-screen via Zoom screen sharing.
Familiarity with telescopes and astronomy is NOT required; beginners are welcome!
Class Duration: 4 Sessions of 1.5 hours each: Wednesdays, September 9, 16, 23, 30, 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
