Don't have your own machines and tools? No handicraft basement? Or just looking for like-minded people?
The so-called maker scene has been booming for several years. Open workshops, FabLabs, MakerSpaces, HackerSpaces, hands-on and self-help workshops and repair cafes are being built in many cities. All with the aim of sharing expensive machines and tools, exchanging experiences, and using resources efficiently.
Modern 3D printers, CNC milling machines, laser cutters, soldering stations and know-how are often available.
