#MadeToday

If you follow us on Facebook, you might have already seen our little intro to #MadeToday. This album is the start of our inspiration gallery and a way to answer the question: “What can you do at The Edge?”. Because really, the answer to that question is “how curious are you?”, and “how big is your imagination?” We’ve got all the tools here; the rest is up to you!

And, this is where you (yes you!) come in! We’d love to see what you’re creating in our space so we can share it with The Edge community. Whether you’re in the Fabrication Lab whipping something up on the sewing machines, mixing tracks in the Recording Studio or designing up a poster in the DML – we’d love to see it!

It’s really simple, should take you no longer than 2 minutes, and can be done on your phone.
 
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
There are 3 online forms you can use to submit your work in progress / masterpiece / disaster / assignment / tinkering project, and picking the right one will depend on what resources you’ve used at The Edge.

If you’re using the Fabrication Lab: 3D Printers, Laser Cutter, Sewing Machines, Hand Tools or Soldering Irons, then use this form:

MADE TODAY

If you’re mixing an audio track or video, you can use this form:

MUSIC MADE TODAY

And lastly, if you’re using any of the software in the Digital Media Lab, you can use this form:

MEDIA MADE TODAY

 

Next Step? Jump onto one of the online forms and submit something…

PS. We’ve created a few forms, because it allows us to tailor questions to the type of project you’re working on. We’re also trailing these forms out, so if you think we’ve missed off an important question, or you have any feedback for us, let us know by leaving a comment below.

What do you make when you have a new laser cutter..?

… an egg cup Dalek.
We bet you didn’t see that one coming!

 
Some may say why? Others may say why not…? An egg cup Dalek is a great idea! But frankly, the egg cup doesn’t matter as much as WE HAVE A LASER CUTTER!! You may have thought that the Fabrication Lab couldn’t get much better; that the 3D printers, sewing machines, tools and CNC were pretty cool, but we think we’ve just topped it!

Are you ready to play? Access to the Laser Cutter works like all the other resources in the Fabrication Lab. To book the resource you first need to complete a safety induction. But, we haven’t released any inductions for the Laser Cutter yet. If you’d like to be informed when the inductions are running, register your details with us, and we’ll put you on the priority waiting list.
