EFF and the Cyberlaw Clinic at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society are working together to use this new process to challenge patent applications that particularly threaten growing 3D printing technologies. As a first step, we are evaluating 3D printing patent applications currently pending before the Patent Office to identify potential target applications. We need your help! If you know of any applications covering 3D printing technology that you think should be challenged, please let us know by emailing3Dprinting@eff.org (and also point us to any relevant prior art you might know about).
“One Just One is a new company using Kickstarter to launch a collection of procedurally-generated 3D printed jewellery. The idea is to generate a series of base designs, tweak each one into a thousand unique models, and then sell each of those only once.” ~ blog.ponoko.com
