Open source comes to 3D printing

Terrific slideshow, Beth. It looks like open source software is coming to 3D printing. It's wonderful to see the technology moving away from specialists and going out to the great unwashed budding design engineers.

Note that we have a feature story in the works on 3D printing. Written by our own Ann Thryft, it will be posted shortly.

Ann, these items look a lot like the Mold-A-Rama toys we used to get at the Muesems in the Chicago area.  These are injection molded plastic toys.  I really like them, but my wife was always wanting to get rid of them.  It was fun to watch them being made. 

On the other hand, I can see one problem with all this personal manufacturing.  These are, of course, novelties.  We used to collect small toys that were dropped off at a resales shop.  They were great for target practice.  (did I say that?)
