Knowledge Base

We specialise in open source hardware, software and education to help people tackle global issues in their local community.

Open Source Hardware

We build and use machines that have blueprints, build instructions and diagrams which are readily open to the public.

Open Source Software

We use, test, teach and improve off the shelf software to help tackle global issues.

Open Source Education

We make educational material such as articles, books, flash cards, and do workshops on various topics including but not limited to Machine Learning, 3D Printing and recycling.

Translation

We believe that knowledge bases should be available to all people around the world. We help translate technical documents so more people can learn and share.

Open Source Hardware

Open source hardware is another way that people help the wider community as it allows for improvements to surface and anyone to participate. When we can, we like build some of them ourselves and participate in the community that forms around them.

Machines that recycle plastic

Dave Hakkens open sourced some low cost machines that can be used to recycle plastic in his project called Precious Plastic which included an injection machine, an extrusion machine a compression machine and a shredder.

We followed these instructions and we now build and sell these machines to companies, schools and universities either to recycle or as an educational tool.

We've been building the machines since Version 2 had been released and there were only four machine designs. Now Dave Hakkens and his team has released even more machines after finishing Precious Plastic V4 in 2020.

Open Source Software

Where possible we use Open Source Software in our toolchain as it helps us move fast, work better and make improve to it. We are not afraid to reinvent the wheel when we have to and where it fits we also open source this work.

Coronavirus Flashcards

We recently attended the Hack from Home Hackathon where we built resources to help people understand the global pandamic.

The website is so that it is easily viewable and portable to any form. We hope to make the dataset in such a reusable format that any people who wish to use the content in their own application need to only point to the centralised location.

Open Source Education

We do many things to help spread the knowledge we have been lucky to have the opportunity to learn.

Videos

We've recently started documenting the work that we've been doing in video form so that you can follow along the way in hopefully an educational and entertaining manner.

Recycling Workshop

Workshops

We do in person workshops on a variety of topics.

For example we run workshops on the low cost and open source Precious Plastic machines that provide a good way to get started with recycling in your local community.


3D Printer Training

We often run 3D Printer Training Sessions for all levels of expertise.

In these workshops we cover, what would make a 3D model suitable for 3D printing, and what would be difficult to print. Preparing a STL for loading into OctoPrint, loading a STL file into OctoPrint, slicing in OctoPrint, preparing the printer and printing.

Flashcards

We have to learn many topics so we built for ourselves several flashcards on various topics.

We've opened these up so more people can learn about these topics, take a look and pick and choose what you're most interested in!
