    Discover the stories in your data, democratically

    Uncorked Studios

    Information is for everyone. As full participants in the knowledge economy, access to information is a basic tenet that we all cherish, especially when it comes to increasing that access to help make better choices. The better informed we are, the better decisions we make. Today, IT and dev functions in companies are often the guardians that maintain, manage, collect, and tend to the vast amounts of information that is being generated as data.

    But what if we made it easier for all non-technical folks to understand data with intelligent, intuitive visualization tools? They would all have increased access to information! Our individual perspectives can bring about new insights where each team member stands to gain from finding their own perspective pattern in the data.

    Our goal is to democratize data, to put the data exploration and discovery into the hands of the many.

    In this event, we intend to fully involve the audience and have a personalized discussion on this novel new way to see the same data from different perspectives. What are the advantages? What are the challenges? How can the technical departments mitigate these challenges? These questions and more will be tackled. Speaker

    3D Modeling and Printing Workshop Series

    Uncorked Studios

    Sign up now, this event has a very limited number of spots! Registration for this event includes all three workshop sessions. You can register for the event via Eventbrite.

    Come to ChickTech’s 3D Printing workshop to get the skills you need to start making 3D models on your own! For three Tuesday evenings in a row, you will be led by an experienced design instructor and focus on building a basic skill set for 3D printing design. Best of all, you'll get to print each session’s project in one of five plastic colors to keep!

    Technology that will be used: Autodesk Fusion360 and 3D Printers

    The Instructor: 3D printing designer Mazuir Ross (Maz) Maz sculpted the 3D printed cow Veronin for Urban Farmer PDX! To learn more about the designer check out her website at mazuirross.com. She is also in partnership with Attero, who focuses on the hardware side of 3D printing. You can find information about Maz and Attero’s operation at mazandattero.xyz.

    Session 1, August 25th: Make a Custom Charm The first session will overview the basics needed for successfully designing 3D printing output, particularly FFF/FDM printing. In the lesson we will create a snap-on custom charm for beer bottles/wine glasses. The creation of the snap-on charm will focus on basics of sketching and creating geometry from sketches. You'll be able to put a word or name on the charm, or even make flowers and/or geometric shapes!

    Session 2, September 1st: Make a Trinket Box The second session is about modeling a trinket box with a lid. The session will focus on the combining/subtracting and/or intersecting of geometry for modeling. We'll also focus on the concept of fitting tolerances needed for CAM/CNC fabrication, particularly 3D printing.

    Session 3 September 8th: Make a Six-Panel Hinged Cube with Custom Panel Design In the third session, you'll model a 6-panel hinged cube, including learning how to create fitted hinges. You'll also get creative with the custom designs on each panel. This folding cube can be designed with a sports team logo, a company name, anything you want. It can also be made into a desk trinket to hold pencils/pens/stylus just by cutting out a hole on the top panel.

    By the end of this workshop series you'll have a comprehensive understanding of 3D printing, 3D modeling software, and 3D design.

    Part of ChickTech’s mission is to retain women in technology. We intend for this event to build community and add skills to resumes. We encourage anyone who has always wanted to get started with 3D Printing to register for this event!

    Dates: Aug 25, Sept 1, Sept 8 Time: 5:45pm-8pm (Doors open at 5:30pm and close at 8:30pm, we encourage you to come early and stay late!)
