    Learn the basic features of Fusion 360, a 3-D design program that will allow you to design objects on a computer screen and turn into items made of metal, wood, plastic or even molds for casting glass.

    This class is required if you want to take studio-specific classes in how to run computer-controled tools at BARN including the plasma cutter in the Welding Studio, the milling machine in the Metal Machining Studio, or the CNC router in the Woodworking Studio. You can also use Fusion 360 to design objects for BARN's 3-D printers. 

    Please note: You must bring a laptop computer with a mouse and a working copy of Fusion 360 already downloaded to that computer. This is critical as no computers are provided, and the design program does not work well with a trackpad. There is no time during the class to download the program. If you have questions or run into problems downloading the program, please use this form to contact the instructor for help.

    This is a two-session class, designed to allow you to work with the program after the first session and get help with roadblocks or answers to your questions at the second session. Allow time between the sessions to work on your project, which you will get at the first session. A  learning reference will be provided on the techniques covered in the class, including: 
    • Basic design concepts
    • Step-by-step creation of a cad design
    • Additional learning resources so you can fast-track your proficiency in Fusion

    Instructor: Chris Stanley is a fourth-generation artist/ craftsman who works in a variety of media. After working for many years as a professional model maker in both architectural and design fields, he went into education. He taught computer-aided design and other classes for the Art Institute of Seattle for 19 years.

    Please join us on Wednesday, October 17th for a special seminar on charitable planned giving. This event is open to the public.

    Planned giving can do two things, lower taxes and trade a gift for income. It is sometimes referred to as gift planning or legacy giving. Some planned gifts provide life-long income to donor. Other gift plans use estate and tax planning to provide for charity and heirs in ways that maximize the gift and/or minimize its impact on the donor’s estate.  

    Planned giving allows for a donor to have a more meaningful impact with their gifts and potentially reduce unnecessary taxes.

    Topics to be discussed include:

    • The opportunity of charitable IRA distributions
    • How the new 2018 tax law makes PLANNED GIVING more powerful
    • Gifts of appreciated assets
    • Income from gifts of appreciated assets
    • The new power of bunching charitable deductions

    Speaker bio: Mark McComsey
    Mark is a BARN Member and volunteers in several of our studios and is part of BARN's fundraising committee.
    Mark’s investment approach begins with a focus on earnings revisions and belief that accurate analysts provide a powerful edge in validation of growth as well as recognizing deterioration early.

    Special Opportunity

    Experience what you can do with gas welding under the tutelage of a master artisan. It is like drawing in 3-D with fire and metal.

    Oxy/Acetylene welding uses gas and welding rod to create structures or join materials.  A gas mixture is used to create a molten pool to which filler material is added by hand to create a weld of build up sculptural material.  It can be the most creative of the welding processes.

    The class is a full day – 9:00 to 12:00 and 1:00 – 4:30.  The morning session is devoted to explanation of the Oxy/Acetylene process, safety, proper use of tools, and hands-on development of technique.  From 10:30 to noon, you will be forming and shaping metal rods using the torch. By afternoon 1:00 – 4:30 (if not before) you will be using what you learned and practiced to create a piece or pieces of your own design and imagination.

    This class is also being offered on Sunday, October 21. To register for that class, click here.

    Oxy/Acetylene processes are also applicable to heating and bending, brazing, flame treating (coloring), and cutting (ferrous) metals.  Understanding and proficiency using Oxy/Fuel is essential to having a full range of skills in the welding studio.

    In common with other kinds of welding, oxy-fuel welding results when two pieces are heated to produce a shared pool of molten metal. The molten pool is supplemented with additional metal filler depending on the metals to be welded.

    An additional $20 materials fee for gas and filler rod that will be added to the cost of the class when you register.

    Safety and Personal Protection Equipment will be provided by BARN.

    Students must wear natural fiber clothing, long sleeves and long pants, closed toe shoes (preferably leather or cotton), no stretch fabrics.  Dress warmly, the studio does not have heat.

    Feel welcome to bring a bag lunch. We have a refrigerator to store lunches and drinks.

    If only one student has registered 48 hours before the class, the class will be cancelled.

    Cut shapes out of flat sheet steel.  Make an idea into hard reality. 

    Plasma cutting uses a highly focused electric arc and compressed air to cut steel.  Wiki (paraphrased) describes the process thusly:  Plasma cutting involves creating an electrical channel of super-heated, electrically ionized gas i.e. plasma, through the work piece forming a completed electric circuit. Compressed gas is blown through a focused nozzle at high speed.  The electrical arc ionizes some of the gas, thereby creating an electrically conductive channel of plasma. As electricity from the cutter torch travels down this plasma it delivers sufficient heat to melt through the work piece. The compressed gas blows the hot molten metal away, thereby cutting through the work piece. 

    Participants will use a plasma cutter to create a design in 16 gauge steel (roughly 3/32nds). Each student will have a 2 foot square sheet of steel to work with.  Bring a design to work with. Detail should be at a level you can draw with a sharpie or soapstone and trace with a somewhat awkward implement while wearing gloves.

    Details:

    • There is a $25 materials fee for steel 2'x2', cutter tip replacements, consumables and PPE that will be added to the cost of class when you register.
    • Work space is limited on the plasma table.  Students will take turns using the plasma cutters.
    • The class begins with a safety briefing.
    • BARN will provide Personal Protection Equipment (PPE)
    • Participants must wear long sleeve shirt and pants in natural fiber clothing and closed toe shoes (preferably leather or cotton).  Stretch fabrics are prohibited.

    Instructor: Dave Roe.  Dave is an amateur welder and a principal in the Metal Fabrication group at BARN.  He is a Board Member at BARN.

    Learn the basic features of Fusion 360, a 3-D design program that will allow you to design objects on a computer screen and turn into items made of metal, wood, plastic or even molds for casting glass.

    This class is required if you want to take studio-specific classes in how to run computer-controled tools at BARN including the plasma cutter in the Welding Studio, the milling machine in the Metal Machining Studio, or the CNC router in the Woodworking Studio. You can also use Fusion 360 to design objects for BARN's 3-D printers. 

    Please note: You must bring a laptop computer with a mouse and a working copy of Fusion 360 already downloaded to that computer. This is critical as no computers are provided, and the design program does not work well with a trackpad. There is no time during the class to download the program. If you have questions or run into problems downloading the program, please use this form to contact the instructor for help.

    This is a two-session class, designed to allow you to work with the program after the first session and get help with roadblocks or answers to your questions at the second session. Allow time between the sessions to work on your project, which you will get at the first session. A  learning reference will be provided on the techniques covered in the class, including: 
    • Basic design concepts
    • Step-by-step creation of a cad design
    • Additional learning resources so you can fast-track your proficiency in Fusion

    Instructor: Chris Stanley is a fourth-generation artist/ craftsman who works in a variety of media. After working for many years as a professional model maker in both architectural and design fields, he went into education. He taught computer-aided design and other classes for the Art Institute of Seattle for 19 years.

    MIG (Metal Inert Gas) welding is the easiest kind of welding to learn and a technique with broad applications.

    This hands-on introduction to MIG welding covers the first two classes of a four-part series.  It is a 3 ½ hour combined class. Class size is 4 people facilitating one-on-one learning and direct mentoring. Each participant will have the use of a fully equipped Miller 215 welder and will go through the set up process.

    The class includes shop safety and hazard awareness and proper use of Personal Protection Equipment. There is a brief introduction to welding theory and proper preparation of materials.

    There will be approximately 3 hours of hands-on instruction in making a weld beads, different types of welds including butt, lap, “T”, edge, and corner welds.  Mentoring will be from a professional welder.

    At the end of the initial class, students should be able to lay down a weld bead, identify the characteristics of a good bead, and problem solve for the causes of incorrect beads.  Students may progress to simple welded pieces.

    Details:

    • There is an additional $18 materials fee for steel coupons, gas, and filler wire that will be added to the cost of the class when you register.
    • Safety and Personal Protection Equipment will be provided by BARN.

    Join others who are learning to use Fusion 360, a program that BARN participants can use to design projects for the new CNC router in the Woodworking Studio, the CNC milling machine or plasma cutter in Metal Arts, or the 3D printers in Electronic & Technical Arts. 

    The users group meets from noon to 2 p.m. on the first and third Sundays of each month to give people a time and place to work on their Fusion projects or simply to develop their Fusion skills. With many people meeting and working together, we’ll be able to share knowledge and increase all of our skillsets. The group is intended as a followup to BARN’s introductory Fusion classes, but people who are learning Fusion on their own are also welcome.

    This event is free for members and $20 for non-members. Please register so we know how many will be attending.
