Big Ideas in Columbus

WHAT IS THE COLUMBUS IDEA FOUNDRY?

A community workshop space, also called a hackerspace or makerspace. We have a simple mission: teach people who want to learn and provide tool and technology access to people who want to make. We have over 100 members and at least a third represent independent, local small businesses.

We offer tools from conventional woodshop, metal- working, welding, and blacksmithing stations to leading technology such as CNC ShopBot, laser cutter and engraver, and 3D prototyping printers. We also have fine-art stations: jewelry-smithing, screen printing, warm glass shop, and a privately operated dark room.

We can also design and build things directly for consumers and businesses—such as meeting small business retail needs, signage, and commissioned merchandise.
