Digital Greenhouse and the Half-term Make-A-Thon

As some of you already know, the Digital Greenhouse is kindly letting us use their facility as a base for operations as they prepare to open our first full-time community workshop. We’re extremely grateful for the support and encouragement from DG and we’re looking forward to more collaborations going forward.

To celebrate, we’re intending to host a series of open events in the new Digital Greenhouse facility. The first event will be held over the week of half-term, Monday 22nd to Friday 26th February. Over the course of the week we will be attempting to build an open source BQ Ciclop 3D scanner, using BQs electronics package and parts printed on the Ultimaker. The scanner will then become permanent Makerspace equipment. If you have any ideas for other build projects for future events please tell us.

It’s an open event, all week. Come along and chat, help out, bring along stuff you’re working on.

BQ Ciclop Electronics
BQ Electronics kit for the Ciclop comes with a purpose built Arduino compatible control board, motor drivers, laser line modules, webcam and power supply.
