Founded in 2013 by self-admitted tinkerer Mark Carew, OpenBuilds began as an online hacker space where makers and mechanical engineers could collaborate in an open environment. The OpenBuilds forums remain a valuable resource for people of all skill levels. As avid makers, it was frustrating to find parts from many different vendors that were compatible and easy to use. Thus, the OpenBuilds modular building system was born.
We believe that open source provides an express lane for innovation. OpenBuilds is commited to sharing their designs for exactly this purpose.
