19. Invention, intellectual property and income


MakerSpace is the name of my final project, It is a Combination of 3 machines (all in one) which characterizes any maker space or fablab around the word,Powerfull tool for rapid prototyping. It’s also a desktop makerspace, a 3D printer, laser engraver, and CNC machine with interchangeable heads. Using FDM (Fused Deposition Modeling), it uses standard 1.75mm 3D printer filament with common e3d v6 extruder, 2 watt Laser module with TTl driver usefull for cutting and engraving on paper, cardbord, 3mm MDF and plexiglass and 500 watt spindle for molding and casting, making pcbs and cutting wood.

As FABACADEMY final project, MakerSpace brings the advantages of an open source development:

  • full awareness about how FabLab machines works

  • reproducible design

  • possibility to customize the machine and/or to build new ones

  • local self-fixing and self-production of the machine parts

  • community can use and improve the design

  • cheap alternative to have a desktop FabLab

  • use MakerSpace as tool for prototyping

Dissemination Plan

For my final project, I am planning the folowing steps as plan:

  • Testing the project in Fablab

  • Testing and developing though workshops in universities and other fablabs

  • Crowdsourcing

  • Develope & make updates on thge project

  • OpenSource release

After having a perfect & the final prototype, I am planning to:

  • Look for companies intrested in the project

  • Fund a company (StartUp) to start producing the product


During the FabAcademy, I focused a lot on electronic design & productionto make my own board and understand more about machines. So for my project, I am trying to solve some known problems and focus on parts that I didn’t know before

  1. Design a controller board for an all in one machine

  2. Improve the wiring and make only one connected cable for the 3 tools.

  3. improve the machine assmebly (make it easy to assembly).

  4. Add a new features to the machine like 3D scanning.

  5. Making a manual book for the machine for assembly and for use.

  6. Make the machine frame and the mechanical parts stronger.
