Ottia is simple enough to be the first tool you use and versatile enough to grow with you as a maker.
Ottia is a first-in-class 3D-printer and maker-machine that is welcoming and accessible for newcomers while, at the same time, being highly capable for seasoned makers. From its large build area, to its swappable tool-heads, and portable go-anywhere, make-anything design, we see this device as being able to live and evolve with the needs of any maker from hello-world to hardware-hacking.
Best in Class:
Unlike most of the current options which have taken industrial machines from the 1980's and scaled them down to consumer sizes, we have redesigned Ottia's software and motion system from the ground-up to meet consumer needs specifically. This allows us to offer a best-in-class working area that is 2ft. wide, a best-in-class print-speed of 150mm/s, all for a best-in-class price of less than $200.
3D-Printers get a bad rap. They are fantastic, life changing machines but many people find it hard to use them because many of them can require near-constant maintenance. As a user, you just want to be able to use your machine without needing to get an engineering-degree to do so.
With Ottia's exceptionally modular design, this is never a problem. Every machine eventually wears down and Ottia is certainly not an exception to that; however, with swappable tool-heads and replaceable arm-segments, you're never more than 4 clicks and 2 clips away from a complete fix.
In addition to guaranteed up-time, Ottia's swappable tool-heads allow this one machine to be the only machine you'll need to buy for a long time. As technology advances and our business grows, we'll release new tools that will keep your Ottia Maker Machine up with the times.
Here are just a few of the up-and-coming trends in personal manufacturing that we are working on making automated tools for at OTS-HQ:
- Multi-Material 3D-Printing
- Fabric Cutting/Stitching
- Full-Color 3D-Printing
- High-Res Resin 3D-Printing
- Multi-Layer Circuit-Board Printing
- Multi-Color Batter Extrusion
Don't want to wait for us to get around to making a tool for your needs? No problem. At launch, we'll be open-sourcing the hardware and software behind our tools and arms so that anyone can make a tool for a niche application that we haven't gotten to yet.

Our Personal Manufacturing Manifesto
Personal Manufacturing for the Masses
Over the past decade, there has been explosive growth in a new market called Personal Manufacturing. Now, more than ever before, it has become possible for someone in a basement or makerspace to bring any idea to life in a handful of weekends with a handful of tools, without the wealth of investment that has been required in the past. As such, this burgeoning field of personal manufacturing is both creatively and economically empowering.
However, entering this industry is prohibitive for many groups such as educators in matters of both cost and expertise. For example: knowing what to do with these machines (3D-printer, mill, etc.), typically takes having access to them. For many people without an accessible makerspace around, having access means buying these machines. Buying them typically entails spending 1000's of dollars on a bunch of machines that you don't know what you're going to do with. As a result, many institutions find that they can't justify such an expenditure and don't get involved in the industry.
We think that's a tragedy. We believe that it's of paramount importance that everyone get the opportunity to get their feet wet with these game-changing technologies and experience the creative freedom that they provide by bringing creativity into the 21st century. Ottia is our solution to finally getting personal manufacturing into the hands of the masses.
