Print me a spaceship ...

Back at EuroFoo 2004, I ran two session - one on Worth Based Development which touched on the commoditisation of IT and the other on 3D printing.

One of the things I talked about was the need for open source hardware and how as the technology develops, value will be in the designs and raw materials (even the printers will be ultimately printed).

So it's good to watch how new sites and services are growing in this area.

The well know sites includes Instructables and Fab At Home, however more sites are being constantly added. One I've just picked up on is 3dvia.
