Vagia Pantou, Architect Engineer, Mycity-me Team
Social Manufacturing | From Mass Production to Personal Fabrication
The workshop will focus on Digital Fabrication technologies (especially in 3D printing) as a tool for learning through making. It will introduce collaborative open source platforms for design and customization that enhance Social Manufacturing. Participants will learn how to use open source design tools and how to participate in collective platforms or how to contribute to a digital project by sharing their ideas and inventions. Ultimately, participants will learn how to use low cost machines for fabricating their ideas.
