Hi Steemers, here is the episode 3 of the communities explorations :
MakeSpace Madrid is a dedicated MakerSpace for digital creations and work. It offers the latest tools for prototyping & developing technological and creative products or projects. The space count 49 members and is open 22h/day. For 30 Euros per month, you can access to all machines and a very organized Eco-system with many meetings.
The community focuses on collaborative production and knowledge sharing with the following main areas of focus :
- 3D printing
- open innovation processes.
MakeSpace is managed by a non-profit (Makespace Madrid Association) and fueled by it's members. The community is composed by a large spectrum of individuals, ranging from students to retired, passing by engineers and developers.
MACHINES, MACHINES, MORE MACHINES
The space is able to propose a wide range of machines. Also thanks to donations they can have a CNC (donated by a private company in the sector).
A great example of what's happening there : Using open-hardware, these makers are building a led-based light system for wheelchairs, synchronized with music.
OPEN TO EVERY CURIOUS ONE
There is a tour every Tuesday from 19h to 21h so jump in the maker train if around !
