making money from 3D printing?
how you make money with 3D printing IMO, is the same way as 2D printing of photography.
people, your customers pay for the one off print job at your 3D printing business.
you offer your customers free 3D CAD software, so people can make their idea. import work, then have them pay for the 3D printing. finally have it delivered to your customers door, just like framed photography. -this business model should work. note- free 3D CAD software should not be free! IF customers export the 3D files outside the software you offer them as free. the customer software application should also calculate the cost of the work to be printed & offer help with good 3D design.

With the Uber cars there is always a safety driver that is ready to take over if needed. In many cases an engineer is also in the car to monitor things. In Pittsburgh we have been seeing them semi-regularly.

It’s hard to say when a company should sell. I remember thinking MarkZ was crazy for not selling Facebook to Microsoft for 1Billion. At the time they were still relatively new with lots of competition from Google and even an open source social platform iirc.
Fisker Karma automotive in Anaheim California has a rare hybrid vehicle, I believe its manufactured in finland
Which project did you use from Joeybabcock.me? I see he has many

Apparently there were Quebec-class Russian submarines. I don’t know why. Quebec came from a native Indian word. The Quibec thing problem isn’t referencing Quebec as in Quebec Canada though. Unless they are from there and it is an inside joke.
