Presenter

Simultaneously, digital fabrication tools have become smaller, better, and cheaper. The democratization of manufacturing is driven by and for Makers, and not only will the factories of tomorrow look and operate more like the cloud services of today, but large investments in tools will no longer required. One day in the not-to-distant future, factories will fit in a garage or small office.
