On May 5th and 6th, TechShop will be opening its newest location in Detroit, a city where there are probably quite a few guys who would really appreciate it. Although we’ve mentioned TechShop on more than one occasion over the last several years, they haven’t been expanding anywhere near as fast as many of us had hoped. The completely equipped membership workshop is such a fantastic resource for anyone living near one, to see the shops expanding is great, but it sure would be nice to see more of them.
Glancing on their website, I noticed members now have the opportunity to take free classes for Autodesk Inventor, and they get a free 6 month license for the software, so they can use what they learn on their own time at home and design whatever they want to build. After designing it on the computer, they can then use the tools at TechShop to build it. Inventor is top of the line CAD software and having an opportunity like this for the price of membership, just $99 per month, along with all of the machine tools and guidance available is something anyone able to join should definitely take advantage of.
Like we’ve said so many times, the cost of learning anything you want to know is rapidly dropping to rock bottom levels. If you want to learn, there’s no reason why you can’t. With TechShop, you can even have access to the workshop of your dreams. Amazing.
