While there have been a bunch of projects promising to add subtractive and additive in the same machine for makers, this one is going after these tools within a machine safe enough to have in your home. Interesting idea!
introducing the Microfactory
a networked, easy to operate, affordable, mess free, quiet, safe desktop machine capable of: printing functional parts in four colors or multiple materials and computerized etching and computer-controlled milling!
Use the “Machine Shop In A Box”, the first machine to combine additive and subtractive machining in one package, to unleash your most innovative ideas!
- mess-free milling for quiet indoor use
- print and mill in the same machine
- fully networkable complete on-board computer
- print in 2 materials or four colors at once
The Microfactory was designed by experienced industrial makers and incorporates a ton of useful quality, safety and durability features into its revolutionary design. Check out the Machine Specs for lots of incredible details!
