Learning to Scale - Rapid Manufacturing with Enclosures.

As Cory Doctorow - @doctorow - says,

"3D printing is a dumpster fire of stupid, obvious patents, but thankfully many of these are expiring; this year, the stupid patent on putting sides on a 3D printer …."

I've been interested in the subject of small-scale manufacturing (as opposed to one-off 'making') for some time – even before 3D printers became a thing ordinary people could own.. I've used various small-scale manufacturing schemes in my stories and I've written essays on the subject as well. Most notably:

1. Are we heading for De-Industrialization?

2. Joining the Omnifacture revolution.
