- Based on the ecosystem theory, this paper summarizes the meaning and characteristics of the maker space, and defines the ecosystem of the maker space, using three dimensions??"??"the customer ecosystem, the resource ecosystem and the maker spirit, and analyzes the marker space’s three core mechanisms：entrepreneurial resource integration, "energy" transformation and ecosystem metabolism. Based on the meaning, structure, features, and operational mechanisms of the ecosystem of the maker space, three development paths are proposed, namely, enriching and optimizing the community of makers, accumulating high-quality entrepreneurial resources, and achieving seamless integration between creators and resources.
