RUCKUS is part of a national "Maker" movement toward entrepreneurship, technology, and start-up manufacturing. Local can now be global. Access to affordable, high-tech equipment, such as 3D printers, CNC machines, and laser cutters are accelerating the prototyping and fabrication of an incredible range of new locally-developed products.
With RUCKUS' partnership with the Industrial Design Program at Purdue University, RUCKUS' Resident Makers and Maker Members get access to the key resources to design, prototyping and expertise to make their products right here in Indianapolis.
