About Us

BotFactory is developing desktop 3D printing tools to quickly and efficiently fabricate electronics.

We believe the future is fully automated on-site or local manufacturing centers, making electronics from a variety of different materials, under a variety of operating conditions.
 

No circuit is impossible
No remote location is off-limits

BotFactory was first conceived by a group of engineers who met in class.  For the final project, 90% of of the class failed to meet the deadline because they were waiting for their PCB boards to be manufactured. With the advances in additive manufacturing technologies, this group endeavored to make their vision of desktop electronics fabrication a reality.
