I saw a clock give birth to a timeline once. It was sticky and had something to do with how Julia Child’s vocalization of the words Les oeufs brouillés changed over time. This timeline curated by i.materialise is cooking up something a little different though. It’s a look at the the past year in 3D Printing and all the plasticy goodness, mainsteam media hype and acquisition insanity it produced. It’s a quick tour of the sixty-nine events of 2011 that you’ll look back on when you’re old and grey and think, “This is where the 3D printed parts on my half-human body all started.” You can view the full timeline here.
