Here's how, just in case =]

On the 29th of March 2014 Techinc opens her doors again for anyone interested. Visitors can see what hacking is, what we are working on and are free to start their own awesome projects.

On this page, we organise the event. You can help making it AWESOME!

How to get there

Come! It's super cozy!

We might need more parking spots! Please add your suggestions, thanks!


The various teams of volunteers will be formed and self-coordinate on the day, but we'd like to encourage people to participate. Please add yourself so we have an idea of how many people are willing to help during the day, because we includes you!

What do?


  • Soldering

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED who can assist with (de)soldering some abusable electronics

  • Laser cutting


  • 3D printing I

We will print some models for demonstration purposes throughout the day, visitors are likely to come up with crazy ideas but we ought to print small things like rings and initials.

  • 3D printing II

We have 4 (four) rather more rare/unique delta-type 3D printers in our space. Two of them are almost finished, we may see them partially working today. Then there is the first printer, that printed all the parts that were needed to build number 2, 3 and 4. And there is the fourth printer, which just got finished and which currently we try to calibrate well so that it prints beautifully. Depending on circumstances, you ought to be able to see two (or more) of them printing all kinds of objects during the day.

  • other...?


There will be plenty of this

We will host talks in the auxiliary room, BEWARE the projector we'll be using has an 800x600 resolution (unless you can bring a better one, contact us!)

Try to talk no more than 10 to 15 minutes, slots are 20 minutes to leave room for questions and to let the next speaker prepare. Please keep the technical stuff fairly lightweight and digestible as we're expecting a mixed audience.

More slots can be added after dinner/BBQ (don't hesitate to do so!).


In collaboration with our Artwork department and MiniTrue, we'd like to print some brochures so visitors will have something to take home. You can help! Please use IRC or mailing list to send in your proposals, nothing has been finalised yet.



We want YOU! To introduce guests to the space (open the door, welcome them in, answer questions). It'd be nice if you'd wear our shirt. If you don't have a shirt yet, we have them for sale in a very wide choice of sizes and colors for €19 each.
