Design and build open source tools, based on what we've already created
Find what you need in our open source library where we showcase designs made by our community and by us. They all come with the information and files you need to build them from scratch.
We offer full transparency in the tools we design, which allows you to:
- customize or upgrade them easily to your exact needs and
- repair them autonomously and gain more control over your workflow.
If you feel like designing a tool yourself based on our experience, we’ve put together the guidelines of our methodology and a series of helpful resources to start.
Learn by yourself with video tutorials
Acquiring new technical skills or finding answers to a particular manufacturing problem is often a hassle. In this section, you’ll get access to all the knowledge we’ve gathered along the years. Access video tutorials related to the tools we offer and get hands-on our tools in no time and kickstart your creative process without having to read a 100-pages user manual.
We’ve been dreaming of a more resilient production system, also supporting local actors. Mekanika is our response to the societal change we seek. Find out more about our vision in our articles where we share our thoughts and discussions with amazing thinkers.
Bring your workshop to the next level and integrate digital manufacturing to your workflow. Our brand new CNC router is the most user-friendly machine there is out there, go check it out !
Meet our team
In 2018, we launched Mekanika with one idea in mind: facilitate local communities' access to manufacturing processes, through open source tools and quality educational content.
Our objective is to help people create, prototype or produce small series with quality tools and machines, which can be made by themselves or by ordering kits.
