Welcome to the CubeSpawn Project




CubeSpawn-Logo-nolettering   CubeSpawn is an Open Source project to build a small, affordable, bench-top scale manufacturing system out of modular parts.

An additionally  goal is to completely automate the production of objects from digital templates.

“Recursion” is also a goal, that is: making many of the systems components on the system itself!

Starting with a basic set of machines, it should be possible to substantially duplicate the system, allowing anyone to make new machines, upgrades, or spares for the machines they have.

Think of it as a 21st century version of Star Trek’s matter replicator. Except, of course, matter replication is not yet available, so maybe its a “matter pattern-er”

Using a combination of conventional machining, lathe turning, 3D printing and other techniques, it should be possible to create complex objects, parts and assemblies, Even without meeting the above goals completely.
