STGO Makerspace is an open space for collaboration, creation, research, experimentation, and development of art, science, and technology projects. We provide members space and access to tools and rapid prototyping machines. It’s also a space for divulgation of knowledge through workshops and collaborative working. We want to stimulate the craziness, the invention, and entrepreneurship. We advocate the use of open technologies in hardware and software, knowledge sharing, and respect for the environment. 

Our space is currently under construction and we expect to finish and launch by the end of March.  Inside the 350M2 members and residence startups will have access to many of the latest technologies an materials in rapid prototyping such us:

  • 3D Printin
  • Laser Cutting
  • Precision CNC
  • Large Bed CNC
  • Welding
  • Electronics workshop
  • Robotics
  • Arduino
  • Latte, Saws, and all kinds of tool to lose a finger.
  • and a Retro Game museum and FREE BEER brewed in house.

The Hack Space is located at Av. Italia 850A inside the building of a former Hat Factory in the heart of Barrio Italia neighborhood in Santiago. An emerging center of Design and Arts.

      Hola Andrea.
      Es que tenemos mucho público en ingles, y había mucha gente interesada fuera de chile también.
      Así que en pos de la comunicación multidiciplinaria internacional lo pusimos en ingles, pronto tendremos en los dos idiomas

    Congrats, the site looks impressive. As it took me some time to explain to a friend the differences between a Tech Shop, FabLab and a Hackerspace, I would like to share this Linkedin Discussion:
