NYC Resistor is a hacker collective with a shared space located in downtown Brooklyn. They meet regularly to share knowledge, hack on projects together, and build community.
NYC Resistor offers fun, interesting, and cheap classes! You can register online via EventBrite for classes like the Monthly Event – First Saturday of every month, Fire the Lazzzor!, where you will learn to use the NYC Resistor 35 Watt Epilog Laser, hosted by Bre Pettis.
“Bring a laptop and design ideas. If you think of it, install inkscape on your laptop ahead of time, it’s opensource and free.
In this two hour class, we’ll walk through all the steps from idea to pressing the “go” button on the laser. We’ll cover safety and basic design skills in Inkscape and you’ll learn how to do a burninate test to find out if something is laserable. After the two hours, you’ll have time to prototype something until 3pm!
After learning the basics, each student will create their own design and lasercut it on the laser! A $10 lab fee is included in the ticket price and covers 12″ x 12″ of acrylic or wood and time on the laser cutter to cut and etch it.
I will be providing bagels and cream cheese. Give me a heads up if you are a vegan and I’ll make sure to have some jam or tofu cream cheese!”
