3D printing, laser cutting
|eMail:||lukas [ät] comaking.space|
Hi, I'm Lukas, one of the CoMakingSpace's founders and managers. You'll usually find me in the Space when I host the Wednesday Making Hours :-)
I always knew I liked to build and assemble things, but never thought of myself as very creative until I built my first 3D printer and began to understand CAD programs. Many other techniques have gotten my attention since then and I believe that knowing how to work with a material automatically leads to tons of ideas what to do with it. Therefore, learning and teaching is the main advantage of community workshops like the CoMakingSpace in my eyes (closely followed by all the cool stuff you couldn't afford on your own).
Besides coming up with new ideas, I believe that knowing even just a few basic methods and tools enables everyone to repair and recycle their stuff more efficiently, reducing the amount of waste our modern society likes to generate.
I especially like combining different materials, upcycling "waste" and incorporating natural materials into my projects. A continuous effort of mine is creating content and structure for this wiki to equip other Makers (especially those around Heidelberg) with a good starting point for their own projects, and contributing to solutions in our Space's "issue tracker".
And here are some of my projects that are (hopefully) finished:
- various other home improvements, e.g. a balkony table
- "Maker's mark" to brand or emboss my finished pieces
- Spartan hoplite knife & pencil holders
- experiments under the Precious Plastic umbrella
- welding campfire and barbecue equipment
- ...and too many more...
Feel free to read on if you feel like it, but these probably won't be interesting to you - more like notes to myself ;-)
