Open Source Blueprints for Civilization. Build Yourself.
See an overview of Open Source Ecology’s work describing the Global Village Construction Set:
We’re developing open source industrial machines that can be made for a fraction of commercial costs, and sharing our designs online for free. The goal of Open Source Ecology is to create an open source economy – an efficient economy which increases innovation by open collaboration.
Open Source Microfactory Build Camp – September 2020
Did you ever want to design or build something, but did not know where to start? We are pleased to announce the Open Source Microfactory Build Camp – where you have a chance to build a 3D printer from scratch, where you learn basic electronics and coding as you build a microcontroller from scratch, and build a 3D printed 3 phase electric motor – which you will print with the 3D printer that you built.

Development on the GVCS occurs both on site at Factor e Farm and remotely via Design Sprints, university collaborations, pilot projects, immersion workshops, and other development opportunities.
If you have organizational skill and you are interested in working more closely with the core OSE team – help us organize university lectures, OSE chapters, Team Projects, Senior Projects, Capstone Projects, Design Teams, Competitions, and Social Enterprise Challenges.
We are developing tools to help you! Any donation, big or small, can help. We are proud to say that we follow agile, lean development practice – and 98% of your donations go directly to project development.
