WE ARE LOOKING FOR
YOU

Mekanika is organisazing its first Collaborative Design Workshop at WAAG in Amsterdam. Discover how to be part of it.

WHO ARE WE?

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. 

We are now moving into a next step in Mekanika's development that will help hundreds of makers to build their project faster. To be able to developp this second step of Mekanika, we are trying to settle the basis of collaborative and decentralized design. This leads us to the reason of this call:

We have decided to organize a   "Mekanika Design Marathon" 

WHAT WOULD THE MARATHON CONSIST OF?


HOW TO APPLY THE MEKANIKA DESIGN METHODOLY?

Two days of collaborative design focused on "How to apply the Mekanika Design Methodology ?"

See here what we mean by design methodology

More concretely, on the first day we wil create 5 teams of 2 designers that will have to transform a choosen existing machine into a Open CAD product on Fusion360.  The second second step  will be to gather the CAD's of the 5 different teams to sum up all the ideas into one final CAD ready to be prototyped.
