Maker space is a shared network platform that brings together many social entities to innovate and start businesses. It has new features such as openness, resource sharing, and social subject diversity. The traditional methods of input factors measured by the organization’s original human, financial, material, research and development are no longer suitable for the development of today's era and economic application. Input-output model needs to be redefined and re-explored. This paper defines the diversified social subject structure of maker space under the perspective of resource sharing. According to the measurability standard of input variables, crowd-sourcing, public support, crowds, crowd-funding, and public research are used as new input variables. A nonlinear input-output model embodying the characteristics of resource sharing is constructed, and through the method of empirical analysis, the output effect of the new input variables is empirically studied. In order to improve the output of the maker space, this paper formulates the input-output path diagram in the field of resource sharing based on the output effect coefficient, and proposes countermeasures and suggestions for how to effectively invest in the innovative space, start up business, policies and public research. The input-output graph of this paper can better reflect the characteristics of the space, and the method is also applicable to other fields of empirical analysis.
