I am running Mac 10.8.3. I am experimenting a bit.


  1. I symlinked python in /Applications/Cura/Cura.app/Contents/MacOS/Cura
  2. ln -s /Library/Frameworks/Python.framework/Versions/2.7/bin/python python
  3. Then i got the following error

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
