A group has organized on the web to assist and encourage others to build their own “fabrication machines” — otherwise known as “3D printers.”  The group hopes to bring the same popular homebrew attention that helped create the microcomputer industry in the ’60s and ’70s to the subject.

And it looks like they’re succeeding.  The device pictured above is one of theirs, and the site indicates that a high school student from Kentucky is using the information on the site to construct a machine to build objects made of chocolate.
