Make :: Create :: Hack :: Learn

The Bozeman MakerSpace is a non-profit Makerspace / Hackerspace in Bozeman, MT. If you have an interest in making, modding things, new technology, or just want to learn how things work, this is to be the place for you. Our makerspace is a community workshop combined with a meeting space where people of similar interests or skills can converge to create, modify, learn, talk and build. You don't need to be proficient with any tools, skill, computer, or even know how to solder. All you need to the desire to learn or teach.

What is a MakerSpace?

A Makerspace / Hackerspace allows groups of people to pool resources and create a community of people with varied interests. These interests may include but are definitely not limited to: circuitry, robotics, soldering, woodworking, fabricating, programming, networking, hacking, bending, etc.

Nov 5th: Quarterly Meeting + Open Build

It's that time once again for our Quarterly Members Meeting (starts @ 7pm). The purpose of this meeting is to discuss ideas, concerns, and most importantly to allow members and the public to suggest what the Bozeman Makerspace should be focusing on in the coming quarter and beyond.

Everyone is welcome to participate.

Since there is definitely enough interest we will be having this class. RSVP to show your interest now!

Class Format: Multiweek class meeting bimonthly for 4 sessions  1 to 2 hours long. Instruction and hands-on each meeting. Open to members for free and non members for a small donation to the space. 

Location: Bozeman Makerspace

Date and times: TBD.  I will suggest Tues nights from 6 to 8 PM. Please contact me if this does not work for you.

Material: In this class we will put together a CNC lathe out of standard components. For this class we have an EMCO Compact 5 CNC lathe spindle and bed ball screws that does not have a control.  We will build the control in class. The process can be used with any machine tool (or art work) that can benefit from CNC control. 

Throughout the class we will explore electrical fundamentals, production build techniques, safety and CNC tool operation, maintenance and programming.

Sessions:

1. Intro to CNC.  Overview of components, interface, and software. Installation of Linux and LinuxCNC. 

2. Computer to real world interface. Overview of open loop control with stepper motors. Intro to servo control. Wiring and interface to stepper drives.

3. Coordinating motion.  Open and closed loop control of spindle speed.  Wiring and interface of the DC drive and spindle motor.

4. Setup of LinuxCNC configuration files and operation of a CNC lathe.  Simple G-code generation. Hopefully we will be using the lathe at this point.
