Fablab Construction kit

Credit: Developed by Mads Hobye in collaboration with Nikolaj Møbius.

This is a Generic construction kit made specifically for Fablab Machinery. Through this template one can design 3 different projects (spirograph, rubberband gun and a robot drawing platform). They are designed in such a way that they can hacked and turned into something entirely different.

It produced with Fabmaker.
