It is with a heavy heart we announce that, after 6 years serving the maker community, Type A Machines is closing its doors.
As an industry pioneer, Type A Machines was birthed from the grassroots maker movement. Founded in 2012, its origins were at the NoiseBridge hackerspace and Tech Shop, moving to the East Bay to expand its manufacturing efforts.
Makers of the award winning Series 1 3D printer, Type A Machines pushed the industry forward while remaining true to its open source origins. The Series 1 was the first 3D printer to include on-board Wi-Fi, the first to include material profiles, and thanks to its unique extruder, could print in more materials than any other 3D printer ever.
“I’m deeply appreciative and proud of the many customers, partners, and individuals who helped make Type A Machines a unique and innovative company, who pushed the boundaries of what was possible, and dedicated themselves to an ideal. Our future will be a bit better thanks to them.”
