CPN Makerspace at FABelgrade 2018 – Hackathon idea generator

CPN Maker’s Space is Open for ideas, open for the community of creative people with various interests – professionals, engineers, researchers and citizens who simply wants to design something and make it. Our focus is development of STEM disciplines, but also those which include arts and design.

At FABelgrade convention we would like to meet people, exchange ideas, and make some of those ideas happen. Short brainstorm sessions with the visitors will help discover what problems and challenges they consider important and relevant for everyday life in urban environment. All of the ideas will be included in our Idea generator – digital cloud which will generate one theme at the end of the conference – the theme of our hackathon.   

After the convention, you will be able to registrate for the hackathon which will take place in CPN Maker’s Space, in May 2018. Winners will have the opportunity to present their ideas at the Microgallery of Science Club Belgrade.

Formula Student Team “Road Arrow”

“Road Arrow” is the first Serbian Formula Student team. We design, build and test a racing vehicle every year, and compete at the most prestigious world engineering competition – Formula Student. The goal of the competition is the education and development of students through the design and manufacturing of a lightweight sports vehicle. There are more than 600 university teams all around the world.

Students from the University of Belgrade founded the team in 2010 and since then we built six formulas, more than 200 students have been a part of the team and thousands of man hours were invested in this project. Throughout the years we managed to introduce new materials, such as carbon fiber and 3D printed plastic parts.

Last season we started to manufacture 3D printed plastic parts on our own. Today we use 3D printer for production of intake manifold, throttle, inserts for wings, which serve as reinforcement for aero package. In the future we plan to manufacture more parts from plastic, such as steering wheel, brake pedal and molds for various complex carbon fiber parts.

The Future of Health is now by Health Tech Lab (Saturday 19:00-20:30 @Amerikana)

Health tech lab is created from a real need of making an impact within the Health tech ecosystem of Serbia.

We envision strong Health tech community tackling health challenges and producing innovative solutions. In order to achieve this goal we need to understand daily healthcare challenges in Serbia by merging communities of health and tech. We also help the introduction and the integration of many of the already existing solutions from the EU, USA and even Serbian market to all healthcare professionals, supporting their recognition and usage.

Together with FABelgrade 2018 team, we will gather students, investors, professionals and entrepreneurs from 3D printing and digital fabrication area, designers, engineers, scientists from health and other areas. You are all welcome.
Looking forward to seeing you at our MeetUp #4!

3D Pharmacy

3D pharmacy is pharmacy of future. As pharmacists we put patient’s needs first. We research how to individualize the drug therapy and easily associate different drugs and release technologies in the same pharmaceutical unit. What that means? We want to tailor drug, shape of drug and dose according patients need. Why is it important for patients? Drug will reach their full potential and we will improve quality of life for our patients. With new 3D print technology we can achieve our goals and in near future 3D printers will have been an essential part of every pharmacy.
So we came here from future. At Fabelgrade you can see what a 3D printer is and how it works in pharmacy. We are going to demonstrate how we prepare mixture of active ingredient and excipients for two types of 3D printers: Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) and Stereolithography (SLA). We are going to show how we make filaments for FDM printer and finally we are going to print drugs with these two printers. You will have the opportunity to see different shapes and sizes of printlets and to compare them with conventional tablets and capsules.

This is practical work in relation to the presentation of Dr Svetlana Ibrić to be held during Healthtech #4 meetup.

The practical demonstrations will be held during both days of FABelgrade, as part of FABFaire.

Interactive sculptures by Bogdan Čontoš 

Bogdan Čontoš was born in Belgrade, Serbia, where he finished carving and engraving high school. In 2017. He finished bachelor degree, Fine art  faculty in Belgrade, sculpture department in class of Mrdjan Bajic and Rados Antonijevic. He is currently on MAS on same faculty.


  • 2016. Izložba crteža i skulptura malog formata studenata fakulteta likovnih umetnosti u Beogradu, Dom omladine Beograd
  • 2016. Transform 2016, Muzej suvremene umjetnosti, Zagreb
  • 2016. Interakcija, Dom omladine Beograd
  • 2017. Izložba crteža i skulptura malog formata studenata fakulteta likovnih umetnosti u Beogaradu, Dom omladine Beograd
  • 2017. Perspektive XXXIII, Nacionalna galerija, Beograd
  • 2017. Spektakularna izložba Bogdana Čontoša, Centar za likovno obrazovanje Šumatovačka, Beograd
  • 2018. Perspectives XXXIII,  La centre culturel de Serbie, Paris

Although the Belgrade Fine art faculty has a more traditional approach to artist education, after III year students are encouraged to develop contemporary ideas. Unfortunately Bogdan finished studies before multimedia arts subject was developed on faculty. As being interested in mechanical and robotic sculptures (commonly referred as mobiles) Bogdan had to find his own production way to accomplish his tasks. With a modest budget, and without possibility to find help in understanding electronic and robotic on faculty, he turned to internet open source lessons and forums and to local fablab organization – Polyhedra fablab .

Most of Bogdan’s work is made of rejected and thrown away parts, for example, completely functional mobile telephone or hairdryer which can be bought on open flea market for less than one euro. Bogdan recycles old consumer electronic and mechanical parts, he is taking them their original shape and function and gives to them a new one.

Two of Bogdan’s interactive sculptures will be on display in the Hall during the whole FABelgrade convention:

  • Maglomat: machine that sells fog, is sculpture named after Serbian phrase “Selling fog” which is used when someone is trying to scam someone, so scammer is called a fog seller. Sculpture is interactive. By putting appropriate coin in marked opening on machine (sculpture) mechanism starts producing fog which is delivered to consumer after 15 seconds.
  • Bušač betona: concrete driller is sculpture that uses old mobile telephone and mobile operator. After calling presented number visitor can enjoy in aesthetic image of moving sculpture.
