We got right to work this morning. The students were introduced to the Silhouette vinyl cutter. To familiarize themselves with this machine, they all cut out their name and learned how to us the transfer film.
The next machine we worked with was the Epilog Mini Laser Cutter. The girls learned how to scan a drawing they made and have it "printed" on wood. Then, using the web-based program "Boxmaker", they created a box and put text & graphics on it using Inkscape.
Today we introduced the 3D printers and 123D Design. The girls got right to work making name tags to become familiar with using the software. Then they were off trying to create their own items.
THURSDAY & FRIDAY
Now that the ladies have been exposed to our variety of making equipment and supplies, they have the next two days to create whatever they want.
