We have opened our high-tech workshop for modern do-it-yourselfers, artists, students and entrepreneurs in modern technologies. The workshop has 154 m2 and is located in Prague 3, in the Eclipse complex (the original seat of large-format printing). The workshop includes 3D printers, lasers, solders, grinders, sewing machines, or a plotter or thermolis and other modern tools . The workshop is open to the public and can be used by members who pay a membership fee. We prepare trainings and workshops (3D printing, drones, robots, sewing and work with laser or CNC).

Our first 3D printer assembly workshop

In the meantime, we want to start with these and gradually, according to interest, we will modify and add:

  • Training in the basics of 3D printing
  • Advanced 3D printing training
  • Basic sewing training
  • Workshop on creating your own drone / robot (3D printing, assembly, electronics)
  • Sewing workshop for beginners (sewing fabric bags)
  • Workshop creating your own print on a t-shirt
  • Creative creation workshop using 3D printing

We plan : A regular creative Friday, when we always agree on a joint project, which we will then implement in more people. We are currently preparing, for example, an RC tank with a camera for remote control. We also plan trainings and workshops with laser and CNC.SMARS's photo.
