Robots are made of CADs and code. (Crypto is just for the lulz). Come learn to build them! Space is limited, Sign up here
I’m Kyle (kylecothern.com), a board member at Crashspace and an engineer who’s way into robots! I’ve had a chance to build some really big structures and robots at RoMeLa, Spacex and Hyperloop and I want to share the lessons I’ve learned with the community.
I’m going to hold a bi weekly lesson about various components that go into robotics design and deployment at Crashspace LA. Meetings will be from 1pm -3pm (and may move around to not overlap with other events, check the calander for the final word).
Sessions will be structured roughly like this:
1. 45-60 minute lesson on an aspect of mechanical design, coding, robotics, electronics, or other related topics, with hands on CAD / Code / Fabrication technique demonstration.
2. 30 minute review of how this lesson applies to a continuing project to build a polar plotter robot I’ve been working on.
and then afterwards I’ll hang around for any questions, or help with the hands on portions.
First few lessons.
Sat 4/7 – Intro to Robotics – Survey of what’s out there.
Sat 4/21 – CAD for Robots – Sketch, Extrude, Revolve, make a part in onshape
May M1 – Robot Coding – How to Make a Teensy drive a servo
May M2 – Engineering Design – The Free Body Diagram, Statics
June M1 – CNC Robots to make your robot – How to take your CAD parts and make them real
June M2 – 3D Printing and you – How to design and make 3d printed parts.
July M1- power and electronics – How to power and wire up your robots!
July M2- GUI / UI – Make your robot driveable.
Future sessions TBD. See you there!
