"It was exciting to get hands-on training in the process of building this sophisticated machine out of nothing more than basic resources," said MSTC Sustainable Heating & Cooling Technician Instructor Ben Nusz.
A CEB press compresses clay earth into bricks that can be used for building. These bricks are cheaper because they can be made with dirt on site, and are consequently more environmentally friendly. They are also highly energy efficient, insulating well against both heat and sound.
The workshop was designed for people interested in hands-on training, especially those individuals who want to use a CEB press in future endeavors. Participants were immersed in concept and production, including crash courses on key elements of design, fabrication, computer-aided design, microcontrollers, hydraulics, open documentation, and open enterprise models. A total of 30 people attended the workshop.
