Makertech is a technology of mass fabrication beginning somewhere in TL:10-18 range.

  • Some believe it to be a type of nanotech.

Please see the following AAB Library Data articles for more information:

Description (Specifications)[edit]

Makertech is a combination of manufacturing techniques including 3D printing, earlier nanotech, early matter conversion, and other methods.

History & Background (Dossier)[edit]

Early Makertech allows for very low efficiency conversion of matter. Makertech is certainly not the fabled replicator from science fiction, but it can be an exponential leap ahead of earlier manufacturing techniques. Practical nanotech manufacturing is becoming more viable and it’s all guided by increasing intelligent processors. Robotic manufacturing has become so commonplace that it is rarely referred to as "robotic" anymore.
