A microfactory is a place where your ideas can grow into real products. Through the use of advanced manufacturing techniques and rapid prototyping tools, products can be made on a very small scale up to the thousands. This enables products to quickly move from concept to creation to showroom floor.

The FirstBuild Microfactory is divided into four sections: an interactive space for brainstorming and product demonstration, a lab for prototyping, a shop to fabricate components, and a build floor where products are assembled.

Test Ideas

Small scale builds help test concepts and learn how to improve them. The microfactory includes woodworking, welding, 3D printing, computer aided milling, and many other tools to help you build your ideas.

Produce Products

The microfactory not only has the ability to prototype ideas, but can also produce products in quantities to meet market demand.

Showroom for New Ideas

Once ideas are ready to be sold, they can be shown off and demonstrated in the showroom. This is a great opportunity to let the public see your ideas and learn how they work.
