This is an Open Source system of machines to make distributing physical goods via digital templates, without shipping, a reality.
With a system like this people can work on digital models, then make them a reality wherever they are needed out of materials local to where they are made

that can make global collaboration on local solutions practical, even easy! 

Things like:
Local power systems,
High efficiency recycling systems
Upgrades and enhancements to CubeSpawn (recursive improvements) to make "makeing" even easier!

This would improve access to new and emerging technology for people worldwide

Think of: Free medical prosthesis, ethical meat tissue printers, free medicine via automated production,  Solar thermal (cheaper than Solar PV) + 1000 more...


I have been Thinking about CubeSpawn for the last 16 or so years...

I started working on CubeSpawn in 2009 part time,
in 2014 I began working on the project full time.

In Late 2014 I partnered up with a large industrial Recycling center, with access to their materials stream, I have been able to build a full 8 cube prototype system. This part of the project is nearing completion:

Now, I need to begin integrating the control software with the existing machines.
All the needed Open Source software is already built! (ROS, Machinekit, MTConnect, and StepNC) 

I plan to do this by offering bounties on the CubeSpawn Github ( https://github.com/cubespawn )

While I have been working on this full time (3 Years!) I have not had a regular income, and while I still have plenty of runway left, I'd like to get other people talking about, thinking about and supporting building this system. FTW!

CubeSpawn could make a substantial impact in many areas.

I'll differentiate this tier once the video's are edited and posted - 'till then its: A continuous stream of the days/weeks work to all the listed repositories 
Goals
$99 of $10,000 per month
Create A youtube video of these machines performing a multi-step operation, By creating a part and performing multiple operations on it using the different machines, This will definitively demonstrate that at least the premise is sound

Also all the documentation, models and software will be added to the existing open source offering.
