Why are you here?

Home and workshop 3d printers, CNC machines, Routers, profile cutters, and NOW 3d scanners are within reach of every enthusiast and professional.


Do you love to work on cars and motorcycles, or have an interest in being able to produce your own automotive parts, but not know where to start?

How do they do that?

Who are we?

When I (Nic Tauroa) was 17 I made the decision to go into the engineering trade so that I could build my own parts.


My first year of trade school after this decision was in 2004 where I was introduced to CAD and hooked.

5 years later I was programming CNC mills for manufacturing, while quietly working on my own projects, buying machine time off my boss to machine my own parts.


By 2018 I was training staff and managing a machine shop when I saw the Markforge 3d printer first hand and its carbon nylon material.


It was time.

It was time for me to take the plunge and start my own workshop.

Time to take all 14 years of experience working with everything from composite moulds to injection tools, aerospace to medical implants and apply it. 


From my 12 square metre shed, I bought a 3d scanner and taught myself 3d scanning and pushed the limits of FDM 3d printed materials. I worked with foundries to produce Aluminum and 316 stainless parts from FDM prints off a desktop machine.


I was having parts laser cut and fabricated from thousands of kilometers away, using my design and working with some of the biggest names in racing in New Zealand.


All still in that shed.

We are passionate about learning, and we are excited by teaching.
