In 2018, we launched Mekanika with one idea in mind:
facilitate local communities' access to manufacturing processes
open source tools
quality educational content
WHAT WOULD THE MARATHON CONSIST OF?
HOW TO APPLY THE MEKANIKA DESIGN METHODOLY?
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.
WHO WE ARE LOOKING FOR?
You are highly convinced that Open Source Hardware is the next step for the product industry.
You are used to product design methodology & development
You have good skills in CAD ( Fusion 360 preferred)
You love to do things by yourself to test and improve your own design
BECAUSE YOU BELIEVE IN HUMAN
This would be great to gather enough designers only because you are convinced that collaborative design is one among the many ways to get back to local production and reasonnable consumptions.
But, even if we need you to be convinced of that, we know this might not be enough to convince you to participate. Reason why, all the participants will receive a 30% discount voucher on Mekanika's product
