Every Make4 Projects starts with the idea that it will be designed, built, and manufactured by members of the community. From PC enthusiast designing parts and accessories for the PC, to drone pilots upgrading their aircraft, a product’s users are in the best position to improve and iterate on existing designs.

The rise of 3D Printers, desktop CNC, CAD software, and the collective knowledge of the internet has, for the first time, allowed consumers to design and manufacture products without an enormous amount of capital or an extensive formal education.

Make4 believes that the revolution has just begun. 3D printers are continuing to evolve and become more affordable. Our children are learning basic CAD and design skills as part of their formal education. The Maker hobby/industry is growing exponentially. This shift from big-business manufacturing and design to a user-centered means of production is just getting out of the gate. Join us for the ride.
