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

    • Taking Advantage of DfAM
      This is a statement that’s often made about AM/3DP. I'll focus on the way DfAM can take advantage of some of the unique capabilities that AM and 3DP have to offer. I personally think that the use of AM/3DP for light-weighting is one of it’s most exciting possibilities and one that could play a key part in the sustainability of design and manufacturing in the future.
