الافتتاح التجريبى لقفير ميكرسبيس 
النهاردة كان اول يوم فى الافتتاح التجريبى لقفير ميكرسبيس , الافتتاح التجريبى ده معناه اننا كملنا شراء المعدات ووضع نظام التشغيل و العضويات لكن فى فترة اختبار 3 شهور عشان نحسن و نطور عشان نحقق هدفنا.
الافتتاح التجريبى معناه برضه اننا بدأنا فى عمليات صنع نماذج اولية للهدايا اللى وعدناكم بيها وحننشر كل فترة تقرير عن ايه اللى بيحصل فى قفير ميكرسبيس.
الحمد لله بعد نجاحنا فى حملة التمويل الجماعى قدرنا نجهز ورشتنا الكاملة بكل اللى كنا محتاجينه فى المرحلة الاولى و اكتر ودلوقتى احنا فى مرحلة الافتتاح التجريبى اللى من خلالها بنختبر نظام التشغيل و التسعير للورشةواعداد الهدايا للداعمين لينا فى حملة التمويل الجماعى.
دى بعض صور المكن اللى احنا جبناه 
ماكينة قطع الليزر 


ماكينة ال CNC Router & PCB Milling,Drilling

معدات قطع خشب 


الطابعة ثلاثية الابعاد

المخرطة والمثقاب النصف فريزة

مش بس كده ربنا وفقنا وقدرنا ننفذ اول مشروع فى الورشة مشروع ماكينة الاحسان و هى ماكينة جمع تبرعات عينية وقدرنا الحمد لله بفضلكم نحطها فى مول العرب 

دلوقتى ورشة قفير بتخطط لمرحلة الجاية وهى اننا ننقل لمكان اوسع عشان يستوعب لمشاريع اكتر و نقدر نجيب مكن اكتر عشان يخلى اى حد عنده افكار فى اى مجال يقدر ينفذها.
وزى ما وعدناكم قفير ميكرسبيس حتبقى معتمده على نفسها ماليا عشان تقدر تنفذ خطة التوسع من خلال العضويات الشهرية المبتكرة اللى بتخليك تستفيد باى فلوس تدفعها على هيئة رصيد مشحون تقدر تستخدمه وقت ما انت عاوز لاى مكنة او معدة انت عاوز تستخدمها بالاضافة انها بتخليك تستخدم الادوات اليدوية مجانيا عشان تعمل مشروعك.
بالاضافة ان فى خصم 35% للطلبة بيخليك تحصل على رصيد اكبر من اللى انت دفعته يعنى لو دفعت 325جنيه حتاخد رصيد 500جنيه دقايق تشغيل للمكن.
احنا واثقين ان الناس عارفة قد ايه هى بتساهم فى الحاجة الكبيرة اللى حتحقق حلمنا كلنا فى ان عدد المنتجات المصرية تزيد.
