this is a presentation I gave today at the Create Chaos 2008 event in Orlando, USA. It shows how Shapeways is enabling the democratization of production by letting people produce exactly the objects they've always wanted to have. Whether they can design in 3D or whether they can not (yet).

    • 3D printing background
      • 3D Printing is a technique that deposites material layer by layer using a head similar to that of a inkjet printer.
      • The head tends to move along the X and Y axes and the object being printed moves up and down on the Z axis.
