3D printing and idealism


Open source 3D printing brings many hopes and aspirations to change society. From liberating the proletariat by providing the means of production to printing guns to 'defend' ones selves. From saving the 3rd world to never have to buy spare parts again. We will discuss the sanes and insanities of this inspiring movement.   Bram de Vries is an engineer and a cultural anthropologist with long experience in open source 3D printing and development cooperation.
