Hack this! Check-Mate

Copenhagen FabLab's very own cooperative design chess project. The project is started by our educatinal FabCreation track but feel free to chip in. Make your peace by making a piece!

Hack this! Separators for bookshelves.

Copenhagen municipal libraries have gone robotic! With our new intelligent materials management system the expectation is that books move around between the libraries seemingly by magic, or atleast by robotics. For the patron this means that when ordering a book it magicly appears on a specific shelf with a designated numbers, the patron receives a text message with this information when the book is available for pick up. The specific shelf is indicated by a markersign with a number and a rfid-chip.

Hack this! Interactive Trashbins

Welcome to the very open library! And welcome to the orderly library?
Copenhagen Public Libraries has greatly expanded their opening hours by providing selfserviced acces after the staff goes home for well deserved rest and recreation. So what happends when the library is open and the staff has gone home? We don't know! What we  do know is that cleaning up after patrons isn't our favourite morning activity. So could  we gently nudge our patrons to use our facilities to dispose of their waste? Hack a can to persuade the man!

Hack This! Digital Templates for tools

Here in Copenhagen Fablab we'd like you to take care of our tools and their whereabouts. We know that FabLab is a busy place and needs constant tidying up and organizing. To help all of us we've started making digital templates for the outlay of all our tools in the lab. In this way we can easily cut or engrave organizing boards for our walls or drawers. With the digital compilation it's so much easier to change the outlay of a given location. What if this drawer needs 2 screwdrivers and 1 hammer instead og 2 hammers and 1 screwdiver?

Skilte/opdeler med bogstavsangivelse Valby Bibliotek

På Valby Bibliotek mangler vi ”opdelere” til SM-let (letlæsning/ læsetræningsbøger
til de alleryngste elever). Bøgerne i denne gruppe henvender sig til børn fra
0. til 2. klasse. Både brugere og ansatte har brug for hurtigt at kunne se hvor
et nyt bogstav/en ny kategori begynder.


Skal stå i bladrekrybbe.

Må ikke have skarpe kanter eller hjørner. Ellers
river man sig let, når man skal bladre i krybberne.



Pdf was printed to the laser cutter with the following settings.

(power, speed, frequency)

Cut - 100 , 40, 2500
Etch - 100, 40, 2500

I first printed page 2 of the pdf, which are the cut lines. Then left the board in place and printed the etch lines. In my experience this is easier and faster than trying to colour map.
