Visit to craft space - Maker's Base Tokyo

Had a tour of Maker's Base, a space in Meguro, Tokyo.

It houses heavy duty machines for craft and industrial purposes and these machines are available for all to use with either a day, month or year pass.

The facility was converted from a small-scale factory.

Never used any of these machines before? Pro or no pro, they provide a mandatory training session of average 2hours for that particular machine you want to use for a small fee. (To prevent you from destroying their robots!)
