Community Watch: Ponoko Online Webinars

Ponoko is one of the premier “making” companies on the net today.  Here’s the pitch:  you design it in CAD, you upload it, they make it.  In whatever material they have and you want.  They do 3d printing and laser-cutting.  I’ve been looking at various ways to create a “prototyping” lab in my classroom and these guys have been high on my to-checkout list.

Seems they’ve been reading my mind (or blog).  I’m currently listening to the Google SketchUp & 3d Printing online webinar.  I won’t be asking any questions during the Q&A on audio, but I’m pretty sure I’ll be asking a few before the day’s out.
