Eventually, education will be virtual - check it out

Thanks for sharing, Chris. Gotta try this..
 
My first Autodesk 123D app order arrived! It's pretty cool: you design something in 123D (in this case, a housing prototype), then pick "Make" from the menu. Enter your credit card (this cost $24) and a week later there it is. Wow.

It's no more complicated than printing photos in Picasa. You can print it on your desktop printer (moderate quality, now) or press another button to be printed for you on a commercial printer (high quality in a week).

Same deal here with 123D: you can "print local" an object on your desktop Makerbot (moderate quality now), or "print global" at a 3D printing service (high quality in a week).

Best of all, 123D is free: http://www.123dapp.com/index.cfm

This is the future...
