Open Hardware Manuals

Automatically generate user-friendly documentation for open hardware elements

This project will create a tool that automatically generates Computer-Aided Design (CAD) models, assembly documentation, graphics, and user guides based on user provided configurations. These documents can be continuously updated, localized, and are shareable - akin to an always up-to-date Ikea-style assembly guide. The tools developed during this project will also be applicable to other open hardware projects, empowering designers to produce hardware that is more adapted to specific contexts, without creating fragile documentation that always goes out of date when a change is made to the design.
