Workshop 88,
481 N Main St, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137 United States
+ Google Map

  Blender is a power tool for rendering 3D visualizations used in creating animations, special effects, interactive 3D computer applications, video games and models for 3D printing. Historically the interface for using Blender has had the repuation of being difficult to learn to use, but recent development on Blender has been focused on improving the user interface. This class will be an introduction to the Blender user interface (UI) including how to use the keyboard and mouse effeciently. The class…

New class: Programming a Tiny85 with Arduino

April 13, 2013 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
Workshop 88,
481 N Main St, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137 United States

Tiny85: a simple, cheap alternative to dedicating an Arduino to a long-term project Atmel offers several processor chips in the same family as the Arduino’s ATMega328P that are often perfect for a simple permanent controller. This class introduces you to the ATTiny85, with mention of some others. You’ll leave with an ’85 running a simple blinkie with code you wrote, you ported to Tiny85, and you burned into the ’85 along with a mini shield to use an Arduino as…
