“Maker Culture” is a term that may have slightly different meanings to different groups. Mechanical engineers may view “maker culture” as something very different than a woodworker would. One thing that everyone would agree on, however, is that sharing is a core aspect of any maker culture. Whether you are collaborating from the beginning or showing off at a Maker Faire after you’ve brought your creation to live, sharing is always a huge aspect to making, and one that every kind of maker can participate in.
With that core concept of sharing in mind, we are proud to announce Make: Projects, a collaboration with Engineering.com. Make: Projects is the closest experience you can get to a Maker Faire, online. Launching with over 25,000 existing members and 8,000 projects ready to explore, you’ll find a beautiful beginning, just waiting for you to share your idea.
While you can Show & Tell your already finished project here, you’ll find that a strong point of Make: Projects is collaboration. You can post a concept or idea and have engineers and makers from around the globe view your work and offer thoughts. Features such as the “white board”, an online sketching/drawing tool make it easy to share tweaks and ideas back and forth within a project.

In this video you can see how powerful the tools for collaboration are. Not only can you create a project and interact with people, you can actually build a team to work on the issues together.
This new online destination will be home to contests, design challenges, group projects, and even more ideas that we’re exploring.
