    3d printing

    Hello All,
    I am in the effort to convince my employer that 3d printing will make our lives easier.
    We haven't bought a printer yet, but i am wondering what software is out there for 3d printing in linux?
    anyone have some recommendations?
    Are there any systems (hardware + software) that people would like to recommend?

    I cant wait fro there to be a 3d printing support portion of this forum.

    Read the following article, especially the part where it says:
    Open source 3D printing is still in the hacker realm. There are no prefab personal open source 3D Printers; you have to build from kits or from scratch.

    Will not respond to PM requests for support -- use the forums.
