What is Makerspace?

Kumpula Think Company's own little DIY workshop.
Makerspace is open for anyone to use during opening hours, 10-18 on weekdays excluding Fridays (10-16). Use of the facilities and tools are free of charge, and you will get your first 3D print for free. The following 3D prints or electronics projects have material costs.

Interested in fasilitated workshops?

In the Makerspace, we arrange two different types of facilitated workshops. These workshops consist of brief introduction to the listed topics and couple of 2-3h long meetings at Kumpula Think Company. These are the first workshops ever arranged in Kumpula Makerspace so you have a chance on taking part in building our community and the Makerspace itself.

The first meeting of every upcoming workshop is reserved for brief introduction to the space itself and getting to know one another and our skillsets so we could learn as much from one another as possible in the future.

The best way to get information about the upcoming workshops and the starting dates 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.

For independent use of the facilities:

Remember to return the tools you used to their corresponding places.
Unplug any electronic devices you used from the outlet.
Turn off the 3D printer if you used it.
Remember to clean the desk before you leave.

If you’re not sure how to use some tool or device, don’t use it! Every week there is a staff member who can advise you on how to operate different tools or devices. Some of the other staff is also able to help you with 3D printing if necessary.
