We are starting up a Special Interest Group (SIG) within Maui Makers that focuses on CNC Machines.
CNC= Computer Numerically Controlled. Machines like the Shapeoko, 3D printers, milling and other machines that make other machines and stuff. The underlying control of mechanical systems is used in closely related fields of Robotics, etc. The group will be a place to share experiences, work on projects (using/upgrading our Shapeoko), and meet others with similar interest.
The plan is to meet on the last Tuesday evening of the month at our makerspace (200 Waiehu Beach Rd, Wailuku, HI) at 630pm for a couple hours. First meeting will be next week March 31st. We will talk-story and look over our Shapeoko to plan out some upgrades and future of the SIG.
The first meeting will be open to public but future attendance will be limited to Paid Members of Maui Makers. Membership at the Friend level is inexpensive ($40/yr).
We are in planning stages for other SIGs. If you have an interest and would like to start one, talk to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
