Very, very bad news. Castle Island was the lighthouse showing the right direction.

I was suprised by the silence of ED.

Condolences of the French rapid prototyping community to his Family.

Dear David,


My goal was to republish all contents just as an archive.


To update the site periodically is practically impossible anymore…

Sad to know. My condolences to the family and friends.

Ed's site was one of my first and main sources when i was starting with additive manufacturing. It kinda introduced me to the amazing world of AM.
Hope Janet's son succeeds, but isn't it too much work for one to do? Maybe we could all help, producing content and maintaining the site. What do you think?


Regards to all
David K.

Dear Steve,


Yesterday I have received a message from Ed’s Facebook account (He was using Facebook very rarely; I was one of his 9 Facebook friends)



Erkut, I am writing in behalf of my brother, Ed Grenda.
Ed died on November 27, 2015 from complications of prostate cancer.
He is greatly missed; he was a wonderful brother, friend. So smart!

Ed touched so many people; please let any of his peers know what happened.
Take care,

Janet Oginski
Boston, MA


I guess, he was 70 years old when he passed away.


I’ve requested from Janet, if possible, to reactivate Ed’s very detailed and informative web site about additive manufacturing technologies, patents and applications;
  The Worldwide Guide to Rapid Prototyping <>


There were tons of well categorized information at that site… The site would be a very helpful and useful source for researchers in this area.


She replied me that her son would try to do it… I hope he will be successful.

Does anyone know what whatever happened to Ed Grenda's "Worldwide Guide to Rapid Prototyping"?.... It was THE BEST AM reference site on the web.

I think he changed the site from to but this seems to be a pale shadow of its former self, having morphed into some kind of bland blog??
