Open workshop is a new addition to the open design family, which offers a framework for the creation of specialist machinery.

About

Open Workshop is a new way to create machinery at home using 3D printed parts and readily available materials from places such as B&Q. It allows expensive machinery to be created inexpensively, meaning that a wider range of people can access machines that otherwise would have been difficult or expensive to access.

The connectors shown offer a basis for many machines that can be printed worldwide if you have access to a 3D printer, or brought from us if you don’t. Hopefully, the parts and mechanisms provided will inspire the creation of workshops and maker spaces around the world. This network of designers will then be able to upload their new designs for parts and machines.

Rules

– It must use a drill as its main power supply.

– It must use 3D printed connectors and readily available parts from a hardware store.

– Must be simple to assemble and require little knowledge of woodwork and assembly to make them.

– Must be able to be made using only simple tools such as a drill and a saw.
