3D printing is a promising era of technology which can change the perspective of the High-Tech world, this technology is already presented since two years as a prototypes trying to print 3D toys models, Although it's not a new technology, guys were first messing around with 3D printing back in the 1980's, for now this technology may take quite long time to achieve the desired results for in-house uses.
By combining MakerBot's Thing-o-Matic 3D Printer with VIA's VE-900 system the company combined product design and manufacturing into a single device. If you're into creating new and innovative designs, be that product enclosures or protection for public utility, military, business or consumer - combining a MakerBot with VIA hardware significantly reduces time to market.
VIA hooked up one of their VE-900 Mini-ITX motherboards to a MakerBot Thing-O-Matic 3D printer along with a customised VIA user interface all displayed on a touch-screen panel.
