ReactorForge, the open source Induction Heater!

ReactorForge DIY Induction Heater


To create a robust, open source DIY high power induction heater platform for all communities that would benefit from such a machine.

Development of this induction heater platform should be based on the sharing and collaborative improvement of hardware components and software source code.


Built with the capability and forethought to interact and function with other reciprocal systems.

Interface with pyrometers, contact temperature sensors, and a wide array of other input and output feedback process devices to fit your exact application.



ReactorForge is built to foster collaboration within and across the many different makers, artists, and scientists that use this platform. You can easily share your data and settings for improved teamwork, analysis, and debugging.

Building an open and interoperable platform is key to reaching this goal, which is why it is a top priority from the ground up.


The simple answer is YOU!

If you join us on GitHub, the forums or one of the many other online communities that discuss, use, and or contribute to the ReactorForge Induction Heater project then you are the team.

We believe that information should be open, accessible, and shared—so many people can have a hand in altering it for the better. 

No one person or small group can know everything. By leveraging the power of our collective knowledge, the result will be that much better. We can learn more from each other when information is open. A free exchange of ideas is critical to creating an environment where people are allowed to learn and use existing information toward creating new ideas.
