This stream covers everything that has to do with the technical aspects of the making process in the Fab Lab. This includes the use of fab-machines (hardware) and design programs (software).

Topics that will be addressed are:

  • documenting the work flow for your machines
  • open source design software alternatives
  • the current state of 3D printing with home-made machines
  • open Source Lasers: LaOS / Visicut / Buildlog / Lasersaur
  • self-made CNC's: timelab Gent, Mantis
  • 3D scanning
  • trends in hard and software

Contributions on these and other topics are welcome. And of course practical hands-on activities and workshops. See our call for contributions.
