Scheduled classes are on our Public Classes and Events page.

Intro to the Laser cutter

  • Workshop, not a formal class.

Intro to Urethane Plastic Casting

  • Instructor: Dave W
  • This is intended to be a hands on class which will take about 3 hours. The idea is to come with a small item you would like to make a copy of and a disposable container which is about a half inch larger in all dimensions. The class will provide the material for a single use mold and a single part.
    • The mold material will be Algenate which is a fast setting non-toxic soft material designed for skin contact. (My first cast was of my thumb.)
    • The casting material will be a relatively hard urethane plastic.
      • Nominally the material is white.
      • Colorants will be available.
      • If there is sufficient interest a clear material will be available. (The material comes in 1 quart minimum.) A student could purchase an entire quart of their desired material if so inclinded.
  • The students will be expected to pay for the materials on the basis of volume. Cost is estimated at about $30/quart based on the casting container size. It will be necessary for them to pre-register to make sure sufficient materials are on hand.
  • The format will be a classroom demonstration followed by a workshop where each student makes their own casting.
  • Items to be covered:
    • Minimum requirements for casting
    • Safety Considerations
    • Introduction to casting materials
    • Mold design consiterations
    • Measuring and Mixing Materials
    • Items affecting casting quality
  • It is expected this could take place in the classroom if provision can be made to control spills. Each student should have about 6 square feet of table space to help prevent spills. Casting material in the carpet is irreversible.
