About MakerBase

Desperate for the bits and pieces we needed for our projects, we found ourselves struggling to find manufacturers, forced to import and even having to buy in bulk, just to source a single component for our hobby projects. Imagine our frustration when we needed lots of different components.

So, we thought we'd make it a little easier for our fellow makers...
