Chaihuo x.factory Dongguan is a makerspace situated in Dongguan, China, also known as ‘the World’s factory’. With such advantage of the space surrounding by the manufacturing resources, x.factory Dongguan aims to open up the manufacturing resources in Dongguan, lower the manufacturing barrier between start-ups and factories, and approach the idea of ‘Open Source Manufacturing’.
For that, x.factory Dongguan will exhibit some of these good-quality suppliers both online and offline for our global maker community so if start-ups would need these manufacturing resources, they are able to access them even in another country.
On the other hand, the x.factory Dongguan space itself still provides a large range of prototyping equipment for members including laser cutters, 3D printers, lathe, circuit production-related tools and etc. This allows members to build their prototypes very quickly, and when their projects are ready, we can connect them with the manufacturing resources in Dongguan for small batch prodcution and eventually launch to the market.
And so we do two things at x.factory –
MAKE – x.factory is an “open factory” with production-level equipment for in-house prototyping and small-batch production services, as well as co-working spaces to make your project.
CONNECT – x.factory helps members to connect to Dongguan’s vast manufacturing resources, as well as industry and market opportunities in China.
