Hi makers!

Today, we are hosting a special guest team from Slovenia. They are going to show us their open source 3D printer - Troublemaker and their GoodEnoughCNC hybrid machine that can transform from plasma cutter to mill or laser cutter. Their KORUZA open networking solution is also very interesting!

Looking forward seeing you in MakersLab :-)

Open hardware GoodEnoughCNC machines focus on simplest construction and affordable cost for maximum reproducibility anywhere around the globe. All our designs rely on stock steel elements that can be commonly found almost anywhere and a small set of generally available parts to create a cost-effective machine every hackspace could afford.

Troublemaker V2 3D printer extends toolset by providing a 30x30x30 cm build volume at an affordable cost and construction without custom parts.Join us for the event to see some of these machines in action and learn about KORUZA - a wireless optical 1 Gbps / 10 Gbps networking system that is an alternative to digging up the road and laying fiber in last-mile applications.

Open hardware and software KORUZA gigabit optical link leverages off-the-shelf parts and a number of simple mechanical solutions to point a collimated optical beam at up to 150 m distant point. Several generations of prototypes, each improving the design simplicity, being more 3D printable and accounting for assembly parts imperfections, will be demonstrated through a number of examples.
