Cartesian Co. was founded in 2013 by Ariel, Isabella and John. Back then we were making PCBs by hand and just couldn’t believe that personal fabrication had come so far but we were still making circuits the same way our parents did. So we set out to make these processes faster and easier… but quickly realised that if a better solution existed we would already be using it. So we started experimenting with completely new ways to make circuits and came up with the process the Argentum uses.Although we all do a bit of everything we all have a core role in the company. In addition to being our chief visionary, Ariel is in charge of the printers electronics. John is responsible for the mechanical aspects of the printer, and Bella is head of software development as well as finances.We couldn’t be where we are today without the support of our loyal Kickstarter backers and customers: if you guys keep building and tinkering, we’ll keep designing amazing tools for you to use.
