Completed Build Guides

Latest Work

  • Many of the machines are under active, iterative development. This will be the case until the end of 2028 - the completion date of the Global Village Construction Set.
  • As we finish designs, we add them to the OSE Part Library
  • You can see the latest versions for each machine at the Genealogies page. The prototypes built are listed with the latest on top.
  • Do you want to get inolved? We follow OSE Specifications, so if you can help us make our machines better, see Getting Involved.


  • We are aware of dozens of machine replications around the world. There may be many more that we don't know about, as we do not track downloads at this time.
  • We expect viral uptake as we near GVCS completion and all prototypes are turned into full products by 2028.
  • You can see existing replications by year at OSE Replications
