Our immersive workshops bring together vision, people, and materials to fuel real creative innovation.

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.

3D Printer

Start off your Microfactory with the open source, DIY 3D Printer that has the lowest unique part count in the world.
