"LA's 1st DIY


  3D PRINT AND

  LASER CUTTING SHOP"

History

Founded in late 2011, The Build Shop is the first Do-It-Yourself 3D printing and laser cutting shop in Los Angeles.  Following in the footsteps of the maker movement of San Francisco, The Build Shop was one of the original pioneers of the 3D Printing maker movement in Los Angeles.

Founded by Bryan and Maya Jaycox, The Build Shop began as a dream project for Bryan to create access to the high tech tools that were available to him in his graduate studies at USC.  Passionate about the wearable technology, art, virtual reality projects, and gadgets which he had designed in the past he wanted a place to work comparable to the labs he had access to in the later days of his college career.  Not just access to any 3D printer or a laser cutter but access to the best high-end tools used by design professionals, not just a place to tinker and learn but a place to grow and foster your dreams and inventions into a lifestyle.

 

The Build Shop is place where creatives can meet, where dreams and innovation are not tethered to the amount of capital you can spend, and a place where you can build practically anything you can imagine.  We are your friendly neighborhood hackerspace, the fab lab around the corner, your local 3D print shop and tech hub, your private design firm, your personal factory, and your friends in the next tech revolution.

 

Come join the Build Shop family as we grow innovation in Los Angeles and a sustainable, independent design lifestyle.  Come make with us!
