Libre Objet : Digital creation and fabrication workshop


Next weekend, 27 & 28 September 2014, together with the Libre Objet collective, we will be hosting a digital creation and fabrication workshop in the makerspace called Microfactory in Brussels, Belgium.

This event is part of the Design September festival and has been selected as one of the best activites to attend by the magazine Vif/Weekend.

The purpose of this workshop is to experience designing products using only free and open source software and then make them using the tools offered by the Microfactory (3D printers, laser cutter, CNC machines,…).

We plan to introduce 4 different softwares, corresponding to different needs:

We will also be introducing the concepts of open source product design and free licensing.

The number of participants is limited, but we still have a couple of seats left. So if you’re interested, don’t wait and send an email to hello [at] libreobjet [dot] org to book a seat.
