The Global Village Construction Set

By on October 9th, 2011 in Hardware


Want to build a civilization? Sure, we all do. But now you can with the Global Village Construction Kit. It’s a set of tools you’ll need to produce and maintain an modern, industrial civilization. From their wiki: 
The Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) is a modular, DIY, low-cost, high-performance platform that enables fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a small, sustainable civilization with modern comforts.
The concept includes a number of devices and processes in several areas: Habitat, Agriculture, Industry, Energy, Materials and Transportation. 
In the industry category, we have: Multimachine, Ironworker, Laser Cutter, Welder, Plasma Cutter, Induction Furnace, CNC Torch Table, Metal Roller, Rod and Wire Mill, Press Forge, Universal Rotor Drill Press, 3D Printer, 3D Scanner, CNC Circuit Mill, Industrial Robot and a Chipper Hammermill. Just the kind of things you’d see in a contemporary makerspace. In the Materials category there’s also a Bioplastic Extruder to keep your 3D printer fuelled.
