Ryan Vinyard OSCON 2014 Keynote

From OSCON 2014: Ryan Vinyard’s keynote talk, “Open manufacturing: Bringing Open Hardware Beyond 3D Printing.” Open source design has been a recent trend in hardware, but it tends to be limited to open libraries of 3D-printable parts. These are geared at makers, artists, hobbyists, and whoever else really wants to print their own figurines, not necessarily the engineering community.

So far there has not been much traction from companies large or small in releasing specifics on manufacturing openly, so this talk addresses the benefits and tradeoffs of making your entire hardware design and manufacturing process open source from concept sketch all the way to tooling for injection molding.
