I also saw that article this morning and we showed it around our shop. We
did not get a mention but the leather trimmed metal looking leg at the end
of the video looks like a part we plated for Scott a couple of years ago.
It would have been nice if they had brought up how much stronger the part
was because of the metal layers that were applied but if good looks can get
these coatings in the door, we can always bring up performance at a later

  Hello all,

It seems my emails from yesterday were not getting through.

There is an exciting article on additive fabrication on the cover of
the New York Times in the US today (Sept 14th). If you can't get a
print copy at your local news stand you can browse to I am very pleased
that LGM and our software group CADspan are highlighted for our work in
architecture and 3d printing alongside Bespoke, Makerbot, Freedom of
Creation and other companies making great advances in applications like
prosthetic limbs, consumer goods and even full sized buildings.

I have been on the list for about 15 years. It is great to see the
mainstream validation and of course great to be a part of that
validation. Much of what we discussed 10 and 15 years ago is coming to
pass although a good deal is yet to be done. Thanks to all who keep
this list going.
