Making Hardware Is a Total Pain. But Not in This Factory | a WIRED article

Making Hardware Is a Total Pain. But Not in This Factory | a WIRED article | Rise of the Fourth Economy | Scoop.it

Chris Church wanted a factory where you could simply request the resources you needed through the Web. So he started one.

 

What Church really wanted was for manufacturing to work more like cloud computing, where you can simply request the resources you need through the web. He wanted to be able to upload his designs to a manufacturer, get a quote automatically, and, when the time comes, order a batch of prototypes with a push of a button, instead of having to spend hours and hours going over spreadsheets with sales reps.

 

That didn’t exist, so, along with electrical engineer Parker Dillmann, he started a factory called MacroFab that lets hardware designers do just that.
