Estate Planning 101: Rules for Effective Estate Planning

Estate Planning 101: Rules for Effective Estate Planning

This class is an exploration of the basic things that must be done to create an effective estate plan. It answers the questions: What is probate? What is a will? What is a trust? How much do they cost? How do I decide which approach is right for me?

The class reviews the seven reasons why most plans don't work as intended, and offers a strategy to address those problems. Particular focus is placed on the importance of proper titling, the need to train your helpers, and the need to update the legal and financial parts of the plan.

The class is highly interactive; questions are welcome. Participants will receive a loose leaf binder containing forms and checklists to begin their planning, or to review an existing plan.

The class is held in Suite 102 at 160 Gould St., Needham, MA. It generally lasts about 1 to 2 hours, depending on the level of interaction, and the number of questions.

To inquire about the availability of late registrations, call 617-624-3350.

Introduction to Raspberry Pi: SEPTEMBER

Description:

The Raspberry Pi is one of the most groundbreaking pieces of electronics of the last year. This single board computer is inexpensive yet comes packed with ethernet, USB, a high powered graphics engine, digital I/O ports and enough CPU power to accomplish your projects. In this class, learn how the Raspberry Pi can bridge the gap between the Internet and the physical world as the brains behind all your projects.

This class will cover the basics of setting up and installing the Raspberry Pi. It will also show you how to use the Digital input and outputs to control LEDs, motors, and sensors. The class will build on these skills to make the Raspberry Pi accessible over the Internet and to interact with existing web pages.

Learn how the Raspberry Pi differs from an Arduino and when to use one over another, and even how to use Raspberry Pi together with an Arduino. The class will conclude with some advanced topics, such as overclocking your Raspberry Pi and experimenting with graphics (great for building your own arcade games).

This class is targeted at those who are interested in learning more about using the Raspberry Pi in their own electronics/software projects and who have some basic programming experience. Students will leave the class with the ability and knowledge needed to build their own ground-breaking Raspberry Pi based projects.

Fundamentals of Mechanical Design: NOVEMBER/DECEMBER

Description:

Have you ever known exactly what you want to make, but had no idea where to begin designing it? Are the projects you're building flimsier or less functional than you wanted, and you don't know how to fix them? Have you ever wanted a concise introduction to all of the main elements of mechanical design in one place? This class is for you.

This class is a lecture- and exercise-based mechanical design and engineering bootcamp developed to introduce students to fundamental design concepts in intuitive and straightforward ways. The purpose of the class is to introduce students to mechanical design concepts and best practices, in order to enable them to start designing basic assemblies on their own, and continue learning more about the field on their own time.

  • Class 1: Structures and Joints-Learn how industry-standard load-bearing structures and joints are designed and constructed, and learn how to adapt those designs to your own purposes.
  • Class 2: Materials -Learn the ins and outs of working with a wide variety of metals, plastics, and woods. Get introduced to the fabrication processes used for each material, and how their selection affects your design.
  • Class 3: Power Transmission-Learn how to design power transmission systems like belt drives, chain drives, and geartrains, and get a basic introduction to how hydraulic and pneumatic systems transmit power.
  • Class 4: Bearings and Shafts -Learn the basics of designing robust, load-bearing shaft assemblies for spinning systems like wheels, gearboxes and the like.
  • Class 5: Fits and Tolerances-Learn about the dimensions and tolerances needed to produce functional mechanical assemblies, and the fabrication processes that are required to hit those tolerances.
  • Class 6: Kinematic Mechanisms- Learn about linkages, cranks, and other kinematic mechanisms used to translate between continuous, intermittent, and reciprocating motions.
  • Class 7: Motors and Engines- Learn how to size and select various types of electric motors, and learn the basics of working with various types of engines.
  • Class 8: Design Process and Example Systems- Learn about common design processes used by working mechanical engineers, and design several example systems with guidance from the instructor.

Class Goals:

Students will gain experience designing load-bearing structures and moving assemblies that transmit power over distance; identifying, sizing, and sourcing mechanical components and materials; and selecting proper fits and tolerances for manufacturing mechanical assemblies.

Prerequisites:

No experience is necessary. Students must be at least 18 years old.

What to Bring:

Laptop (ideally), graph paper-based design notebook, pens/pencils, any ideas for projects you want to work on.

Introduction to 3D Modeling NOVEMBER/DECEMBER

Description:

3D modeling software is used worldwide in professional settings like engineering, animation, product design, architecture, and more. Designing parts in 3D modeling environments allows you to develop an idea in full before you cut any material, and then either make parts automatically on computer-enabled tools (such as the CNC mills, routers, plasma cutters, and 3D printers available at Artisan's Asylum) or develop a set of drawings that allow you or other people to create your parts from plans. In this class, students will learn 2D sketching techniques, 3D modeling techniques for parts and assemblies, and 2D display of 3D models in drawings, using Solidworks 2012. Students will have opportunities to model and recreate real parts and assemblies, create drawings that can be used in computer-controlled manufacturing equipment, and prepare files for 3D printing.

Class Goals:

By the end of class, students will be able to create well-constrained 2D sketches, 3D parts and assemblies, and 2D representations of 3D parts and assemblies. Students will know how to create files for transfer to CNC tools, and will know how to prepare files for 3D printing.

Prerequisites:

Experience with a Windows environment. Students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials Provided:

Solidworks software and example objects for modeling will be provided.

What to Bring:

If possible, students should bring a project or an idea for projects to model in class as an informative exercise.

Introduction to Pneumatic and Hydraulic Systems: FALL 2014

Description:

Have you ever wanted to design mechanisms that move really heavy or large things simply and easily? Do you have any applications that call for controlled linear motion? Are you frustrated with an engineering education that left out a practical grounding in fluid power? Come to Artisan's Asylum in February and learn how to design and assemble pneumatic and hydraulic systems!

Most engineers, designers and hobbyists are familiar with electric motors and their limitations. As a rule, motors tend to spin too quickly for most applications without substantial gearing, they tend to be fairly weak for their size, and they can be very complicated to control for amateurs. They're great for small, simple projects, but stop being as useful when projects start scaling up in size. Pneumatic and hydraulic systems pick up where electric motors leave off!

Pneumatic (air-powered) and hydraulic (liquid-powered) power transmission systems can simply and easily generate hundreds, to thousands, to tens of thousands of pounds of force instantaneously, and hold those forces indefinitely. They can be incredibly easy to assemble (once you know what parts to order), they're easy to control with simple relay circuits, and they're a breeze to design compared to electric systems. The big challenges involved in making use of them are knowing enough about them to design and assemble them safely, getting to know the symbolic language in which their circuits are drawn, knowing where to source components, and getting experience by making enough circuits to get used to the process.

This class will introduce students to the theory, design, and practical assembly of pneumatic and hydraulic circuits. Students will be taught the underlying principles behind each style of power transmission, will get to assemble several different circuits of each type of power transmission, will get to design their own circuits, and will go through the process of sourcing components from fluid power vendors.

Note: This class is offered as a full 8-course introduction to fluid power systems, but students can choose to participate in either pneumatics or hydraulics individually.

Class Goals:

The goal of this class will be to give students a robust introduction to hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Students should be able to assemble hydraulic and pneumatic systems given standard schematics, and should be able to design basic fluid power systems independently by the end of the class.

Prerequisites:

No previous experience necessary. Students must be at least 18 years old.

Materials Provided:

All hydraulic and pneumatic system components will be provided as class items, and will remain at Artisan's Asylum.

What to Bring:

Students should wear clothing appropriate for a shop environment. On days where the class works with hydraulic systems, students should expect to get hydraulic oil on their clothes and skin. Students should wear work clothing they are willing to throw away at the end of class in case it gets too oily.

Instructor Biography:

Gui Cavalcanti is the co-founder and President of Artisan's Asylum. Currently, he's leading the mechanical design of Stompy, a 4,000 pound, 18-foot-wide, 10-foot-tall, 6-legged hydraulic walking robot that seats two, developed by Project Hexapod (a company he cofounded with James Whong and Dan Cody). He worked as a robotics engineer and systems integrator at Boston Dynamics, working on cutting edge mechanical design and systems integration for highly dynamic legged robots like BigDog, AlphaDog, and PETMAN. He was the Systems Integrator for the LS3 project, coordinating the joint engineering and development of multiple subcontractors and engineers. Over the course of his career he has also developed the mechanical systems for a robotic tuna, several robotic snakes, an ornithopter, and other robotic animals.

After The Burial
with Texas In July, I Declare War, Reflections, Come The Dawn
An uninhibited eight-stringed dual barrage of frenetic riffs and dynamic chord progression is exactly what the crushing new AFTER THE BURIAL delivers with pinpoint precision. The highly acclaimed new album, In Dreams, is quickly going to raise the bar for all others within the metal genre as this group effectively unleashes a frenzy of jaw-dropping dual guitar dynamics that is backed by a captivating energy and groove resulting in an overall unrelenting output of punishment. This Minnesota quintet is hell-bent on forging their own unique path within the extreme metal genre and In Dreams proves that they are well on their way to that very goal.Justin (guitars) states: "We've spent the last year putting all of our hard work into this album, and we can assure you that the intricate dynamics of In Dreams will satisfy your appetite for the crushing guitars, driving drums and powerful vocals you've come to expect from us." AFTER THE BURIAL spent the winter of 2010 touring relentlessly across North America on the "December Decimation" tour. This group has something for everyone that pleases the tech nuts while providing an entertaining stage show that is sure to always get the metalcore kids into a violent frenzy. This is a band that thrives on the road and tours relentlessly across the world non-stop. This is an extreme metal hybrid that is a voracious assault on all the senses forcing your brain to fire on all cylinders in order to process the amount of material that is currently being pounded into your ears. This is thinking man's metal and it's not for the weak minded. AFTER THE BURIAL's highly acclaimed sophomore album, Rareform, hinted at their true potential, but In Dreams brings all of their combined talents to fruition. The disc opens with a freight train of brutality and sheer brute force busting out at the seams and never lets up on the gas for a split second. Each track will keep you on your toes guessing what might possibly be next in this never-ending array of intensity. This is essentially a roller coaster of unconventionality, so strap yourself in tight and prepare for a wild ride. In Dreams is going to redefine the genre and position AFTER THE BURIAL as the forerunners of the new extreme progressive movement.

KING - Jennah Bell
This event is 18 and over
KING


Twin sisters Paris and Amber Strother and musical compadre Anita Bias are KING.

In 2011 KING independently released their first EP to much acclaim; title track The Story, (featured on GLAMOURs Top Songs Playlist), Supernatural (NPR's Song of the Day) and Hey (featured in 2014 motion picture About Last Night) make up the 3-piece introduction to their carefully crafted future-soul sound. Hours after the release, their EP had traveled far to music lovers and tastemakers alike, trending on Twitter and making new fans of many. KING have since been preparing their debut full-length album due for release Fall 2014 and are excited to invite their listeners further into their sound. The album will also include the ethereal romance In The Meantime (Top 2013 Pick by NPR, The Guardian UK, and Buzzbands LA).

KINGs smooth vibe, intricate production and harmonic style evolved beautifully in their home studio, a product solely of the three women. Paris produces KINGs songs, while Amber and Anita are the primary singers. The three work together on songwriting and vocal arrangements to create own their very uniquely soulful sound.

Citing influences ranging from a myriad of genres, KINGs eclectic sound is both relatable yet not simply defined. Though their cross-genre sound plays with the boundaries of their varied influences, maintained throughout each of their compositions is the common thread of a certain soulful authenticity. From Ebony Magazine: KING bypasses the impulse to categorize musicians into a singular box by falling somewhere in the utopian realm of nostalgic R&B, futuristic soul and folksy-bluesy jazz." Add to that their electronic, new wave and downtempo tastes, their penchant for storytelling and their exceptional ability to blend 3 voices and perspectives- and the result is a melting pot of music that harks to an earlier time of unbridled exploration and creativity. From Okayplayer: "Its not hard to tell what all the fuss is about; sophisticated pop harmonies that would seem more appropriate to past-masters than newcomersyet never feel anything less than breezily accessible, mostly because of a certain emotional purity to the songwriting. The ladies of KING are just as refreshingly pleasant as their recordings...this just seems to confirm the eerie suspicion that though only two are blood-sisters, all three are spiritual triplets."
