Stratasys the 3D printing machine
manufacturer that makes some of the machines we use has just hired a new VP of Business Development in Direct Digital Manufacturing. Jeff Degrange is a former Boeing tech manager will "accelerate Stratasys’ development and marketing of DDM applications." Yawn, right? It is a telltale sign though of the increasing push of the machine manufacturers away from just prototyping and towards actual production.
George Hart has a nice set of models on his site. The great thing about his models is that he lets you download his STL files and use them, as long as you give him credit. His rhomball(pictured above) is very pretty and if you print it out in SLS you can bounce it off walls.
