Launching a Business

The makerspace is a great place for prototyping and micro-manufacturing. When you are ready to move beyond that, you’ll need extra resources. These are some companies we have worked with and would highly recommend to any entrepreneur.

3D Printing

Need to print multiple copies of something? We recommend Hart Smart Products. They are local and great to work with, and they offer a discount to Area515 members!

Need to print with metal, ceramics, sandstone, or porcelain? Send it to Shapeways.

Electronics & PCB’s

A couple of our members have had good luck ordering custom circuit boards from Dirt Cheap Dirty Boards.

Accounting Services

Do you need help with your books, payroll, or taxes? Timmins, Jacobsen & Strawhacker, LLP is great to work with and graciously supports local organizations, including Area515. They offer a full range of accounting services.
