Is The Manufactory a makerspace, hackerspace, Techshop or Fablab?

Spaces like ours are a relatively new phenomenon, so the terminology is not well defined. Generally, hackerspaces are small spaces centered around computers and electronics. Some hackerspaces may have other hardware for small making projects but lack the full array of equipment offered by makerspaces like The Manufactory.

Other terms that are commonly used are Techshop or Fablab. These are both trademarked names use by spaces in other parts of the US. We operate most similarly to Techshop, offering much of the same equipment and a similar member experience.

We believe the term makerspace is the most accurate term to describe our facility according to this article written for MAKE:.
