3D Printing seems to be finally hitting the mainstream.
People are becomming aware of this new old tecnology, much due to the fact that the availability and open sourceness of it is plunging down the cost of model printing.
The reality of this is falling like a hammer in the industry that is starting to see how disruptive this tech will be. So much that law suits over copyright have started to happen as we write.
Games Workshop, the UK-based firm that makes Warhammer, noticed Valenty’s work and sent Thingiverse a takedown notice, citing the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Thingiverse removed the files, and Valenty suddenly
became an unwilling combatant in the next digital war: the fight over copying physical objects.
