    This class gives students a comprehensive introduction to 2D vector-based graphics using the popular CorelDraw software. This class will give students the basic knowledge to start creating 2D vector files for use with the laser cutters, the CNC router, and the CNC mill. In order to make the most of the CNC Router/Mill and Laser BOS classes, 2D Vector Graphics is recommended as a prerequisite for beginning users.

    This course is intended for students who have little or no 3-dimensional modeling experience, but want to learn the basics to eventually create 3D objects via rapid prototyping on the 3D printer. Topics covered include learning the SketchUp interface, drawing in SketchUp, drawing shapes and creating geometry using SketchUp tools. The emphasis of this course is to learn the basics of SketchUp and teach students how to design simple 3D models of real objects.

    This class offers an introduction to the software needed to successfully operate the CNC machine (Vcarve Pro). This course will outline the workflow of taking your vector designs through tool-pathing software to generate g-code that can be used by the machine to cut student's project. Students will learn how to create designs for the CNC, basic toolpaths, cutting parameters, proper tool selection, and machining strategies. 
    Prerequisites: It is strongly recommended that students have a basic knowledge of how to create vector-based files (i.e- .ai, .eps, .dxf, .dwg, .cdr file extensions) before taking this class. If these file types are foreign to you, it is highly recommended that you attend the Intro to 2D Vector-Based graphics class before attending this class.

    Arduino for Beginners is a one day itensive hands on workshop for students with little to no prior Arduino or code experience. This class will lead students through the complete process of configuring, programming and building basic electronic circuits with a Arduino Uno. 

    During this workshop students will learn:

    • How to configure PC/Mac for Arduino Connection
    • History and function of code and compiliers
    • How to upload sketches to Arduino Micro Controller
    • To read and modify Arduino sketches
    • Basic C Programming
    • To use bread boards for cirucit prototyping
    • Basic electronic components
    • To light an LED utilizing Arduino control
    • To control Servo motors using Arduino control
    • To take input from multi-position switch
    This workshop will be from 9:30 am to 5pm (with an hour lunch break) in the MakerPlace classroom.

    A materials fee of $100 covers each students Arduino Uno R3 Jr Project kit, which includes: Arduino Uno R3, USB cable, battery pack, bread board, LED's, Servo, and electronic components.

    Students should bring a laptop (PC or Mac) otherwise MakerPlace can provide PC laptops for those who do not bring their own.

    Prerequisite: basic computer knowledge.
