The website is intended for artisans, students, hobbyists, enthusiasts, students, engineers, i.e., anyone interested in areas such as woodworking, metalworking, graphic design, decorating, 3D modeling, 3D printing, CNC manufacturing, etc.

Craftsmanspace website is intended for all who want to create, decorate and learn; it is intended primarily for beginners, but also for professionals who will surely find useful information on our site. Initially, we had the idea to offer you only free projects for making all kinds of things, but it happened that some time later we started to draw various patterns that could serve to decorate the objects you made, as well as 3D models for those who wanted to make something on their CNC machines or 3D printers. We have also made collections of free software and collections of free books in various technical fields. In this way, Craftsmanspace website has become a meaningful whole – here, anyone who wants to create something in their workshop can come up with new ideas on what to do and how to do it.
