Open Source Hardware

Open Source Hardware (OSHW) is one of the three pillars of Mach 30’s mission to “hasten the advancement of humanity into a spacefaring civilization.”  We call it “open design” in our mission statement, others call it open source hardware, or even open hardware.  No matter what you call it, open source hardware is, at its core, a process for developing and sharing the designs and documentation for physical objects.   The links below cover the community, tools, and licenses being developed to support this growing movement.
