New enterprises have been established to meet the engineering technology needs of diverse industries. A more distributed model of digital production is now available that more readily affords small scale manufacturing . New production paradigms have brought producers and consumers into a closer relationship. 3D printing will eventually allow a mass audience to manufacture physical items at home directly from the computer desktop. All this affords the potential wide distribution of objects whose function is not defined by the values of established design discourses . http://designedobjects.blogspot.com/
