design global, manufacture local

The Marketplace

A distributed manufacturing marketplace for open-hardware, bringing together clients, designers and manufacturers from all over the world.


When clients choose a product on MakerNet, they receive a roadmap of possibilities for having the product physically made near them. The client’s choice depends on the total price, expected quality, materials proposed and transportation.


Designers can draw up any plan they want through a blueprint. Once stored on MakerNet, the blueprint’s intellectual property rights are protected via a blockchain and remunerated when products are manufactured.


Makerspaces, industries, fablabs, local craftsmen… can reply with a manufacturing price and date of delivery to the next unit on the manufacturing line. All toghether, they automatically create a manufacturing path through MakerNet, that clients can choose and pay for.


Why transport products thousand kilometers when we can only send their information?
