What’s being described as a “factory in a box” is under development by US company Mebotics, with its owners planning to market a device with additive manufacturing as well as etching and milling capabilities.

Salon reports that the MicroFactory project came about after co-founder Jeremy Fryer-Biggs collaborated with the Boston maker space Artisans Asylum.

“I wanted to have a machine that was capable of making parts for all the crazy stuff people people would ask me [to make],” Biggs told Salon.

“I wanted a tool that would allow me to do a whole wide range of things.”

According to project’s website, it is a networked, easy to operate, affordable, mess free, quiet, safe desktop machine capable of: printing functional parts in four colors or multiple materials and computerized etching and computer-controlled milling.
