a collaboration between shopbot and ponoko, 100k garages is a community of workshops with digital fabrication tools, aiming to connect these workshop ‘fabbers’ with ‘makers’ i.e. designers/creators. as a designer, you can either browse their map or database for a local workshop, or ‘post a job’ and have different fabbers bid on it.
