What is the Colorado Printing Project?
The Colorado Printing Project is an independent engineering group specializing in 3D printing, product design and leveraging the strengths of open source software and hardware. The Colorado Printing Project is owned and operated by Brent MacKenzie (bam), an enthusiastic open source designer and semi-professional breaker of things. Founded in 2017, the Colorado Printing Project has helped several companies bring innovative new products to market, and has released several small batches of their own open source products.
We believe that rapid technological advancement benefits everyone, and that good ideas can have the largest impact when they are shared freely. All Colorado Printing Project research and products comply with the Free-Libre-Open-Source ethos outlined by the Open Source Hardware Association, more information available here.
"Talk is cheap. Show me the code."
The Colorado Printing Project leverages the unique strengths of similarly minded companies and developers in order to bring innovative, open source products to life as quickly as possible.
We have worked with Aleph Objects Inc., Forksand, ChromaStrand Labs and E3D-Online, among others.
If something is worth doing, it's worth doing right. We try to give back to the open source community whenever possible. In addition to promoting the use of open source software and hardware wherever we can, we donate 5% of our profits to the foundations behind the software we use.
