The Statewide Illinois Maker Network

The project is seeking volunteer makers including:

  • Individuals with disabilities
  • Volunteer makers of all skill levels and experience
  • Disability and other skilled professionals
  • Community Groups
  • Education groups
  • Illinois maker labs
  • Libraries
  • Businesses

All products will be open source. If interested in participating, please register for the Illinois Maker network.


Manufactured products may not be the best solution due to design features (i.e., materials, weight, strength, adjustability, sizing, complexity, options, etc.) and/or cost effectiveness. An individual is often left trying to accommodate their specific need by modifying an existing device. The ICAT AT fabrication project provides a consumer-directed, collaborative process of design and development to meet individualized needs.

All developed products will be open source and available through the ICAT website.
