Build Camp 3D Printing for Adults is coming to a neighborhood near you.
 

Build Camp is an amazing opportunity for youth to learn new skills, gain confidence, and thrive in a world where only talent is rewarded. Now we are adding an opportunity for adults  to lget in on the action. 
We decided to open these classes for local communities throughout the intermountain west. We will bring the class to your local communities with sufficient local support. Please send an email if you would like to organize and host an event near you. We prefer to hold classes in community centers, library meeting rooms, churches, or even homes. (Low or no cost venues)

Event organizers are rewarded with a free printer once they enroll sufficient participants to cover certain hard costs and minimum class attendance. Become an event host here. 



Upcoming classes:
Please note that classes must reach minimum attendance and fees must be paid a minimum of 3 weeks in advance. Fees will be refunded if class is canceled. Dates may change to better accommodate attendants.

January 21, 28 American Fork, Utah. Min. Attendance: 7
Signup deadline January 3rd. 2017.

March 10,11 Burley Idaho. min attendance: 9
Signup deadline February 17, 2017






Get your own 3D Printer.
Learn how to use it.
Learn to build cool things.
Gain valuable experience for your resume.




You will have expert instruction to put the printer together from a box of parts. That means you will gain a fundamental understanding of how it works, and how to make it better if you ever choose to do so.

Your build day is the day listed on the event. We will run from 8:30 AM to about 4:00 PM. any construction that doesn't get completed on this day should be finished at home before the next meet up. (Some local events are held on Saturdays a week apart, other events are crammed into 2 consecutive days due to travel considerations.)
With your printer 100% assembled you are ready for a crash course in 3D printing software. configure your printer and get all your questions answered, and develop your skills.






You will also be instructed on how to install software on your computer, set up the printer, use the software to prepare a model for printing, and finally print out a plastic part suitable for building hobby parts, machines, and artistic sculpture.

You will need to bring your own computer. We prefer Windows or Linux. But the software we recommend also works on Mac.

The course will run over 2 days. Please help us spread the word and share this event on your media of choice.





For just $499 ($299 for the printer, $200 tuition) you will take home your own hand built 3D printer. that is a savings of over $325 compared to similar courses like this one: here. Add additional family members for just $99 each.

Participants should come prepared with a 6" calipers such as this caliper or this one at Harbor Freight  which often goes on sale for about $10. watch the ads for coupons.

Final count down to Build Camp 2016

Build Camp 2016 Events

Build Camp is wrapping up our 2016 season. We have made a few changes to our schedule for Build Camp Jr, and 3D printing. See below.
 We still have a few slots available in our upcoming Build Camp Jr. on July 29th and our 3D printing camp. We can still order printer kits but they may not arrive before the camp, so you might have to build it at home from the instructions.
The Jr camp on July 29th will be a fun camp and we will be busily involved in building AquaBots.





Click on titles for more information. All camps are held in Uintah city, south end of Ogden.

Build Camp Jr. May 21st and July 29th 2016 A one day camp specifically for children 5-9 years old. Wood toys, gadgets, and science projects. This year we will build Water Powered Robots. Fun projects for young kids. Reg $139 for child/parent teams and $79 for each additional child.
ONLY 5 SLOTS LEFT




3D Printing and CNC Machine. August 11-13
Everyone knows what a 3D printer is, but how hard are they to use? What can you do with them? We will use one to build parts for other projects like our CNC machine and our robots. A CNC machine uses a computer to control a cutter which can cut almost any shape imaginable in wood, metal, and plastic. The problem is they can cost upwards of $500,000. we will build a CNC controlled Laser to engrave and cut parts for future projects.

Reg $239 per child, $189 Per parent or $1 when you add your own printer kit . Build and take home your own 3D printer for an extra $399 $299. Must prepay by June 1st 2016.

Do you have a 3D printer yet?

Build Camp 2016 Events

Do you have a 3D printer yet? If you did would you know how to use it? One of the amazing projects we will be doing this year is building a 3D printer. I'm sure you have heard of them but if not: a 3D printer is a cool little device that can take a digital 3D model from a computer program and literally print the digital model into a physical part. they are fascinating to watch and open a whole new world of possibilities for Makers, tinkers, engineers, and DIYers. For example the green parts in the picture of the Aquabot 1.0 below are 3d printed. it was much easier to make the complicated parts in a digital format and then print them for use on the robot. All this and more will be covered in our July 14-16 Build Camp. 
You and your family will be exposed to 3D printing, CNC, Laser cutting and more in this high tech camp. 
Important note: We have negotiated with our contacts and suppliers to provide you with an even better opportunity. for just $299 more you can take home your own 3D printer made by you. To further sweeten the deal we will also discount parents camp fees to $1. yes, you read right. only $1. To recap. 1 child admission $239
1 3D printer kit which we will help you build and set up, $299 (save $100)
1 Parent admission $1. (Save $188)
Guess what. Most places won't even sell you a 3D printer for $539. This is a great deal and $288 less than our regular price.

We also have our robotics camp where you will bring home your own robotic arm, High Voltage camp where you will help build a cool Tesla Coil, And if high tech is not your thing then come to Blacksmith camp. This is a study from where it all began. Blacksmiths were the original engineers and inventors.  We also have 2 up-coming single day camps for younger children (5-9) where we will build the Aquabot 2.0, a water powered robot.
Either choice you make do it now, because as we get closer to summer all our openings will fill up and you might just get Beaten out (ok, it's a bad blacksmith joke).

Build Camp Blacksmith. June 23-25 2016 Get back to our roots by rediscovering the work of the most clever individuals of old days. Learn the basics of setting up a forge, heating metal and pounding it into something amazing. Also build tools with a mixture of ancient and modern technology.  Reg $239 per child, $189 per adult.


Arduino Robotics. July 7 - July 9 Arduino is a mini micro controller (computer processor) that allows you to control inputs and outputs. Want a sensor to automatically water your plants? It can do it. How about a doorbell that tells solicitors to go away? We are going to use it to build a robot arm that can be programmed to play a xylophone or stack cups or assemble legos or anything else you can think of.

Each child will come home with his or her own Arduino controller, robotic arm, and a box of accessories valued over $200.
Reg $399 per child, $189 per parent/adult. (adult price does not include robot. contact Josh to add robot kit.)
