We had out first Instructables Build Night recently and a few of the members wrote up Instructables showing what they did with the Sugru… here they are:
Thanks to Instructables, Sugru, and everyone who took part in the event. We’ll be hosting another Instructables Build Night in August, so keep an eye on the calendar.
Join us on Tuesday, July 16th, 2013 for the sugru Build Night sponsored by our friends at Instructables!
How does it work? After the 7pm meeting we’ll have a bunch of sugru on hand and all you have to do is create something cool with it. Make something more ergonomic, fix something that’s broken, or come up with something completely new.
Oh, and if you’re not familiar with sugru, it’s a self-setting rubber that can be formed by hand. It molds like Play-Doh, bonds to almost anything and turns into a strong, flexible silicone rubber overnight. Check out the Gallery for some ideas on what you can do with it.
And where does Instructables come into it? They sent us the sugru, and we’re going to create a few Instructables based on what we do with it.
If you’ve got something that needs fixing, bring it in. I’ve used it in the past to fix a broken griddle and to repair a broken letter opener.
This is a free event, just bring yourself (and your ideas!) to 2555 S. Lenox St. in Bay View and make something cool with sugru.
