Engineering The Costs Of Manufacturing Toward Zero

Fascinating post over at Counting Cats in Zanzibar on another "transformative technology" - the three dimensional open source printer Reprap. Would you like to make your own physical products (coat hangers, cups, chairs, tables) by downloading the designs over the web and running them off your own 3D printer? For free? Well why not up the ante somewhat by considering the power of this concept multiplied tremendously through the power of nanotechnology?
