The day is truly upon us where one can have a advanced manufacturing facility in the space of a one car garage.
For example, my current setup consists of one large format 3D printer, a 40 watt co2 laser, and 5 computers bought as surplus from a call center for $100 each.
I do have CNC milling capability, although they seem to go out the door as fast as I make them.
If I was to start anew, I could replicate my entire shop setup for less than $10000 dollars.
I could also add in injection molding and a cnc lathe to the toolbox.
I am doing this in a third world country, with limited resources. What is your excuse?
