I have noticed for a short while something on the internet about public libraries becoming “Maker Spaces” where people can use, amongst other things, 3D printers. There’s this video which explains the possibilities, if you’ve not seen it already:
All our products and projects are produced with 3D printing technologies. First we make a CAD file in a 3D software, such as Studio Max, Maya, Solidworks or Cinema 4D. We then upload the file to a 3D printer and finally unpack the 3D printer and take the product out.
We've chosen a selection of articles that showcase advances in 3D Printing technology.
There’s a new standard in desktop 3D printing.
In the last several years, 3D printers have become exponentially cheaper and more capable. As these printers become more accessible and ubiquitous, they increasingly answer the question, “How will you make it?” We know how we’ll make things in the future: we’ll press ‘print’.

"We have tried many other ways to get a valid .stl file for a SketchUp model, and your approach has been the most succesful...be sure that we will go pro..." -Mauro Herrero Cantos, Previa Arquitectos, S.L.P. The CADspan Plugin for SketchUp allows generation of solid, 3D printable STL files directly from a SketchUp model. The plugin provides several tools to ease the process of preparing a model for 3D printing: -Resurfacer: Shrinkwrap a model into one continuous, solid mesh
A simple, stable, and scalable 3D printer proposal. Barton Dring ( bdring ) of Buildlog.Net fame recently designed a 3D printer based on the multifunctional MakerSlide beams.
