Pewter Casting Beskar Ingots

Join Chad McIntyre for a hands-on workshop on pewter casting beskar ingots.

Looking to hire a smuggler to get you through the Empire’s checkpoint 7? Need to settle up on a debt with a hired bounty hunter? How about wanting to learn a skill that dates back a few thousand years? Well, learning some of the basics of pewter casting might be what you are looking for. We are going to see what steps it takes to go from raw pewter ingot to a finished cast piece. And no better way than casting a few Beskar ingots. In this course you will be introduced to silicone casting a mold of the original, prepping the molds for pewter casting, and finally casting the pewter piece. We’ll also show you a few different types of finishes you can do to the casting to give it a personal touch. It may not get you through the Kessel run under 12 parsecs, but it definitely add to your skill set as a maker. This is the way.

Introduction to FreeCAD

Join Adam Spontarelli for a hands-on workshop on an introduction of FreeCAD.

Whether you hope to make something on the 3D printer, laser cutter, CNC router, or any other computer controlled tool, knowing how to draw precisely dimensioned parts is a critical skill. This is the role of CAD software, and FreeCAD is the pinnacle in the free and open source world.

In this course, we’ll draw household items as we learn the basics of FreeCAD. This means we’ll measure real world components, then work through the process of drawing them precisely in two and three dimensions. The result can be a DXF file ready for laser cutting or an STL file ready for 3D printing.
