Rocket Scientist Gives 3D Printing Lessons

The 3D printer revolution continues.  In the article excerpted and linked below Lee H. Goldberg, who helped design, build and launch the Mars Observer walks you through the "how to" of printing rocket parts so you can build your own rocket at home.  Very cools stuff, with more on the horizon.

I want to see 3D Printers on construction job sites soon!

You can imagine, then, how exciting it's been watching aerospace companies put 3D printers to work in screen-to-machine manufacturing systems that dramatically cut the time and cost of printing flight-worthy parts. Considering how quickly once-primitive home-brew machines have evolved, it won't be long before anyone can print parts for airframes and rocket engines. For now, however, I'm content to learn the basics by building model rockets on the consumer-grade, plastic-spewing 3D printers available today. 

Welcome to the Collaborative Revolution!
