BUILD YOUR OWN TOOL NOW


This section is all about our open source catalogue and about helping you to find what you need in it. Discover how we build our tools and machines and learn more about our design methodology.


What kind of tools are we talking about?


Our open source catalogue is mainly composed of tools and machines that allow you to produce or transform something, but we also showcase simple mechanical assemblies such as workbenches or movable furniture.

Feel like designing a tool yourself?


Mekanika is an open project and we believe in the power of collaborative design. That's why we created a handbook that explains the core design principles we follow, in order to help people who are eager to develop open source hardware in a similar way.
