dc.description.abstractWhat makes a software program “open source” is that its source code is publicly available. What is pretty clear for software is less clear for hardware—especially for mechanical hardware. What does the term "source" refer to in "open source hardware"? According to the Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA): "Open source hardware is hardware whose design is made publicly available so that anyone can study, modify, distribute, make, and sell the design or hardware based on that design." What does it mean to "make a design publicly available"? What are the documents that enable others to study, distribute, make or sell a design? This short guide provides practical answers to these questions and is dedicated to those who want to make a piece of mechanical hardware open source.en
