Manufacture and sell your open-source hardware projects.
Refaqt helps creators to produce and distribute their inventions. Have your project made by our network of micro-factories or become a producer yourself and obtain all the tools you need.
Sell high-quality open-source hardware kits to your community
You have developed a great project and shared the design files online and you want to support your community to build their own versions? We help you to sell, manufacture, and distribute your project.
Produce custom mechanical components easily and affordably
We build affordable micro-factories for local production and share how we do it. Join us and copy our machines and solutions. Start with our 3-axis CNC milling machine and produce metal components with high quality.
How it works.
Creators upload their PROJEQT. Designs are validated and launched onto our production network.
Users buy kits of validated PROJEQTs on our MARQETPLACE. Profits are shared with creators.
Producers manufacture components in their FAQTORY. They compose the kits and ship them to customers.
Refaqt provides Producers with all the solutions and knowledge they need for building their FAQTORY.

No need for skilled operators or CNC machining expertise.
Always the right tools and right-size material blanks
We make sure that you can immediately start machining.
To build an open, distributed manufacturing ecosystem in which anyone can locally produce, repair, and refurbish high-quality mechanical products and all contributors get fairly rewarded.
We believe sustainable manufacturing is localized and open-source.
Big overseas factories are efficient for stable mass production, but too rigid to create a flexible supply of spare parts for decades to come.
We solve this by building small factories that can locally produce parts on demand.
How can you efficiently repair something if it is not clear how to do it, and you cannot find spare parts?
We freely share designs and manufacturing know-how so that everyone can produce any product or component, anywhere in the world.
Help us build the future of manufacturing.
