The Fab@Home Project is an Open Source home fabrication machine movement. We’re talking about everyone eventually making all their own products at home, instead of buying them in shops, so it’s a hugely ambitious project, but good luck to it. They also talk in terms of wresting innovation away from global corporations, which makes it sociologically pretty scary stuff too. But good luck. Did we say that already?
Inspired by this history, the goal of this project is to offer an open-source, low-cost, personal SFF system kit, which we call “Fab@Home”. The aim of this project is to put SFF technology into the hands of those same curious, inventive, and entrepreneurial citizens. In addition, through this Wiki web site we hope to inspire users of Fab@Home to exchange their ideas for applications and their improvements to the hardware and software with us and each other. Several machines are already in use.
