We are Bernd and Jérémy, both researchers at TU Berlin and interested in the topic of documentation in open source hardware. What are the requirements for online information sharing allowing to spread open source hardware? What information shall be shared, in which form? How an information-sharing platform shall look like? Which features would be required?
We therefore present the documentation jam challenge: considering a given product, what information shall be formalized and shared in order to allow any interested person in the world to reproduce it?
We will come with a product we designed and prototyped: the CubeFactory’s Recycler Bin, a little machine allowing for transforming plastic waste into 3D printer filament. Based on this example, we will be pleased to think about you on these questions of significant relevance for the international open hardware community!
Learn more about: the CubeFactory, the Collaborative Research Center “Sustainable Manufacturing”.
We will be at the Berlin OSCEdays on Saturday June 13. Ask us questions or tell us about your ideas for documenting open source hardware or our Recycle Bin - here in this thread or at the venue in Berlin.
