I just like watching industrial CNC machines...

Small Industrial Grade Metal 3D Printing Factory

Major players in 3D printing are developing new miniature-factory manufacturing cells. Consider them as precursor to Star Trek industrial replicators. They can operate almost without human workers and create very valuable high-tech products. This will be a major shift in decentralized manufacturing and have a huge economic impact.

OpenSCAD Tips and Tricks by Benjamin Engel

Benjamin Engel created this great OpenSCAD tutorial where you will learn few useful tips and tricks.

MIT Software for Drone Design

MITCSAIL developed an interactive system for computational design, optimization, and fabrication of multicopters. The computational approach allows non-experts to design, explore, and evaluate a wide range of different multicopters
