Melbourne Knowledge Week 2016

CCHS recently played a pivotal role in the Melbourne Knowledge Week 2016 maker faire at the 1000 Pound Bend cafe. It was a huge success with appearances from a number of Melbourne’s maker groups who all put on a fantastic demonstration of what can be achieved through knowledge and making.

A big thank you to everyone who helped put the event together, everyone who brought something along to show off, and to our hosts for having us!

.

A big thankyou to Rod, Wendy, Kiosc and teams who made it possible.   Lets do it regularly.

Thanks also to those that helped out with the CCHS stand and soldering workshop – Greg+team, John, Shane, Jen, Bernd, Andy,  and anyone else I’ve missed.

Miscellaneous Hacking

It’s been a busy time at the CCHS lately! Members have been steadily working to commission both laser cutters, the big CNC mill “Bessie”, the mini CNC mill and a new Mendel Max 3D printer. Wednesday the 20th saw a good turnout to help out with soldering up the PCBs for the ESPlant project John and Angus are spearheading. The hackerspace has also acquired some new tools including a bandsaw and desktop PC for use with the Oculus Rift and David laser scanner which will be commissioned in the coming weeks.

See you at the ‘space!
