Nice writeup! I think as more people start to design and print components that interact rather than simple monolithic figurines and trinkets, things will get more interesting. In the professional world, FDM is but one widget in the prototyping toolbox to realise an awesome design, and I suspect that it is only a matter of time before the open hardware / maker world starts fleshing out more open tool chains and hardware "api's" and design patterns to "compile" bits to atoms. Open design will happen... :-)

Two stories you should listen/read today. This American Life investigates Nathan Myhrvold's company, Innovation Ventures, for its activities into patent licensing... Back in 2008, Gladwell wrote a very different perspective on the same company for the New Yorker. How things have changed!

Law needs to follow the practice. However, I also think that American Educational System should stop producing too many lawyers who needs to get creative in the margin to generate their own revenue...
