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 brouill√©s 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.
