Connecting a Community of Product Makers

Manufacturing. Mentorship. Machining... HUB

mHUB is Chicago’s first innovation center focused on physical product development and manufacturing.

More than just a fabrication or production shop, they offer a wide variety of prototyping and manufacturing equipment and services to their members. Ultimately, the mission of mHUB is to be a community that helps teams accelerate and grow their business, and MakerOS helped them do just that.

mHUB has a dedicated 3D printing lab with Polyjet, SLS, SLA, FDM, and Metal machines.

Managing 10 fabrication labs across 63,000 square-feet John Welin, mHUB’s shop manager, says that in order to deliver on that mission,

"Our staff needs to spend as much time as possible on the work that counts: design, engineering and fabrication; and a minimum of time on routine bookkeeping and project management chores".

mHUB incubates hundreds of companies; they all create their projects through mHUB's MakerOS.

With MakerOS, everything stays on their white-labeled platform for members. From a single dashboard, the mHUB team is now able to review, accept, and process requests for 3D printing from each department. The members are also able to learn about the capabilities of mHUBs manufacturing facilities and develop cost estimates in real time while collaborating with shop managers like John.

This transparency has helped mHUB maintain clear and consistent communication channels with their members and focus on what matters to them most: creating a thriving community.
