Build Your Own Microfactory
We are developing open source industrial machines and teaching how to build them step-by-step in hands-on workshops throughout the United States and remotely through video chat around the world. Start your own Microfactory to produce goods and materials in your home, workshop, or community space. All of our work is open source according to the OSHWA definition.
Start off your Microfactory with the open source, DIY 3D Printer that has the lowest unique part count in the world.
Extend your Microfactory with the Plastic Grinder to shred scrap plastic you can input to the Filament Maker.
Start your own plastic recycling center. Feed the output of your Plastic Grinder to the Filament Maker and create usable filament for the 3D Printer.
Expand your Microfactory with the Laser Cutter. Manufacture custom parts from wood, plastics, and metal.
CNC Circuit Mill
Plug in to custom electronics by manufacturing your own circuits.
Looking for a teambuilding event? Sponsor a workshop for your team and we can donate the Microfactory machine you build to a community space in need.
