The 'Proto Buildbar' is a creative makerspace in Ohio that serves as a place to make 3D-printed creations, tinker with electronics and enjoy an assortment of refreshments from the cafe-bar. While the idea of getting into 3D modeling, printing and assembling electronic components can be somewhat intimidating, this is a space with a relaxed environment to make people of all ages and abilities feel at ease.

Unlike many workshops and makerspace studios that require users to commit to a membership or time-based pricing systems, Proto Buildbar bases its costs on the time it takes a model to print, beginning at $20.

In order to make sure that the public can get the most out of the space, Proto Buildbar hosts special events and classes for the benefit of new and experienced makers.
