Laser Cutting: Cut and Etch Your Own Designs with Our Laser Cutter on July 28th

TOG Dublin Maker BBQ

On Sunday 22nd July, from 14:00-18:00, we’ll be holding a BBQ in the space as a bit of a wind-down following Dublin Maker 2018.

Maker is always a hectic day, but great fun too. It’s great for us to have a lazy, wind-down afternoon in the space. Drop in and say hello. We’ll have some food and drinks on the go, and a bit of banter too. Hope to see you there. We’ll be sure to give you a tour of the space if you’ve never been in to see us before.

Maker Faire Kansas City 2018

Once again, members of the Omaha Maker Group participated in the Kansas City Maker Faire. Due to a general lack of interest, we forwent an “official” OMG booth entirely this year, focusing instead on the Power Racing Series. Garrick and the Tesla coil crew had quite the show, though, and even got a photo of their setup in the Make Magazine article.

After the Faire on Saturday night, most of the gang went to the new Hammerspace, the local Makerspace which is “like a gym for people who like to make things. WITH ROBOTS!  AND LASERS! AND 3D PRINTERS!”.  Their new location is HUGE, and it sounds like things are going really well.

We did a lot of things “right” this year, staying downtown (the new Home2 is an easy walk to Union Station, as long as you’re not carrying a cooler), skipping the booth (so everyone gets to hang out together and no one is “stuck” for their shift) and not waiting 3 hours for “pretty good” barbecue (Sorry guys!).

Race Results

Our amazing Power Wheels crew scored a FIRST PLACE in Moxie for the Amazon Box Car this weekend in KC!! With strong driving and an almost unbreakable car, we came home with a 3rd-place overall for the weekend! WOW! Great job to everyone who had a hand in it!

The BMW car had a very respectable finish, too. Again, great driving and a great design proved their worth – 90 seconds to change a tire? That’s amazing! The body, unfortunately, did not fare too well – it stayed behind in KC, destined for the trash bin. But the car is home and is a ready platform to build on our successes.

Thanks again to everyone for a great weekend.
