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.
At Makerspace, you can...
1. Use a 3D Printer
2. Solder electronics
3. Fix your gadgets
Interested in facilitated 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.
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.
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.
When using the facilities independently, please remember to...
• Only use tools and devices you are familiar with or have instructions to • Return all the tools you used to their right places • Unplug any electronic devices you used • Turn off the 3D printer if you used it • Clean your desk before you leave
