Maker’s Paradise

We own and maintain rapid prototyping tools and measurement instruments for electronics. There is a well equipped and ventilated hand soldering & rework station and a reflow oven for small batch production. Enclosures, cases and other products can be 3d printed, laser cut, CNC milled, sewn or hand crafted just like back in kindergarden.

Naturally we offer courses for all ages and skill levels.
