steven popkes - automated fabrication

Rapid prototype, fabbing, 3D printing are all terms for taking a computer image and creating a three dimensional  object. This could, conceivable, be CNC milling as well but I'm talking about creating something new out of raw materials rather than cutting down a finished object out of a raw block of something.

Here are some links.
