What is Makerspace?

Kumpula Makerspace is Think Company's own little DIY workshop. Use of the facilities and tools is free of charge, and you will get your first 3D print for free. The following 3D prints or electronics projects have material costs.

Makerspace is located at the Exactum building of Kumpula campus, Pietari Kalmin katu 5. Makerspace is open for anyone to use during Kumpula Think Company's opening hours. Find current opening hours and read more about our spaces at our coworking page.

Interested in facilitated workshops?

Occasionally we arrange facilitated workshops and workshop series at Makerspace. These workshops consist of brief introduction to the space itself, getting to know one another and our skillsets, introduction to the topic at hand and a couple of hours of creating something of your own. Makerspace and the workshops are still in their early days, so everyone interested are welcome to take part in building our community and the Makerspace itself!

The best way to get information about the upcoming workshops is by joining our Makerspace telegram channel.

Workshops arranged in Makerspace
3D printing workshop
In this workshop we will go through the working principle of a 3D printer and how to use it. You get to know how to search for ready-made 3D models and print them as physical 3D objects. In one of the workshops we can familiarize ourselves with CAD software and how to model 3D objects ourselves.
Electronics workshop
In this workshop we will familiarize ourselves with the Arduino microcontroller and go through some tutorials on how to build basic electronics projects using Arduino. We will use existing guides from the internet to build these projects with the components that are available in the Makerspace.
