    "The Global Village Construction Set (GVCS) is an open technological platform that allows for the easy fabrication of the 50 different Industrial Machines that it takes to build a small civilization with modern comforts."

    I saw the CNC circuit mill, which works on the circuit boards, but I don't see anything on the GVCS 50 for making actual transistors, let alone integrated circuits, which would definitely be inside, for instance, the CNC circuit mill itself, and the welding machine, among others.

    So what about fabrication of semiconductors?

    Pretty good technique for homemade transistors.
    Applicable to diodes as well.

    If you want to get fancy, and know a glassblower & jewelry maker, DIY vacuum tubes are a well-developed art.

Howdy, Stranger!
