Open Source Machine Building Workshop
In a collaborative setting, we will build powerful machine tools with which you can make almost anything. In only one week together with people who have never done this before we will build:

An open source 5 axis CNC milling machine 

A 3-in-1 fabrication tool

A huge FDM printer

After the workshop the technical documentation of the machines will be available online with a Creative Common License, in order to be replicated, modified and rebuild.

The workshops have been succesfully accomplished on 27th of June 2019.
