We believe open source knowledge and digital fabrication can serve as a platform for empowerment and life improvement since it enables local production of solutions a certain community needs as well as it lowers the entry barrier into manufacturing for small local businesses. We plan to run several pilot projects to establish a good practice for setting up local digital...

In the last year we proved that low-cost CNC milling and plasma cutting is technically feasible and that our approach of a “suitcase kit” works - we lowered the entry step in digital manufacturing and made it possible practically everywhere around the world. That is why we are now exploring options how to distribute more GoodEnoughCNC Hybrid machines globally to...
