Re: 3D Printing of Sailboats

Back in '52 ,Kurt Vonnegut wrote 'Player Piano' telling about society changing with automation.. About the same time I read a story about a renaissance hero who programs his computer to extrude a space ship in which he leaves Earth with his sweetie. A tad short on the technical aspects but most of us have no idea how things work anyway so not to get hung up with details. The concepts are now coming to reality and the dream of sailing off in your own vessel is closer, even if you do have to buy the program.
