We look at the four common ways open hardware is commonly manufactured, and show the package of files we send to get our stuff made.
This is the ‘studio’ version of our ‘Get your stuff made‘ presentation from OHS2011 New York, MM07 Tokyo, Homecamp4 London, 2012 mini Maker Faire Shenzhen China, and 2012 Bay Area Maker Faire California.
