Site du Club de Robotique et d'Electronique Programmable de Ploemeur
Formed in 2012, the CREPP originally began as an Arduino workshop.
The club organises workshops to discover Arduino, robotics and 3D printing.
The CREPP have been very supportive of COBA2 during the design & production process of our various prototypes.
A 'Fablab' (manufacturing laboratory) is a place where creative people ('makers') use digital machines to create everyday objects, artwork, manufacturing kits...the possibilities are limitless.
All of the machines at mon-fablab.fr - the 3D printers, CNC machines and Laser Cutting Machines - have been manufactured in-house and are open-source.
Mon-fablab.fr sell the 3D printer and CNC machines as a kit for home use; training sessions are also available.
COBA2 is working with Mon-fablab.fr to produce the Surface Marine Autonomous Drone Kits,
which are now available to order.
