This page is an archive of iMAL's wiki that operated between 2012 and 2022. It documented projects, residencies and workshops mostly taking place at iMAL's Fablab.

Older & newer Fablab projects are now found at

Code, Arts & Crafts - Mechatronics

Mechatronics is the combination of mechanics, electronics and (more recently) computing to create programmable mechanical machines. This design process can be applied for example to robotics, it's also the basis of machines such as drawbots or RepRap, Makerbot or Ultimaker printers.

In this workshop, participants will be able to create their own mechanical machines, with the help of FabLab.iMAL's various digital fabrication tools (lasercutter, 3D printers), the Arduino technology and the experience of Julien Maire and Stéphane Noël.
