  • Ubuntu - DIT
  • Self-Determination - true point of right livelihood is bringing everyone up.
  • Design Rationale logging - through Visual Part History. See D3D_Universal_v20.07_3D_CAD peg as a great example.

Tech Expectations

  • D3D Genealogy - all of those have been built, but we are perfecting them.
  • Iterations are not just for any product, but the best product in the world for lifetime design (serviceability), modularity, scalability, fast build, low cost, high performance
  • OSE Chapters do not come to a finished product. It is co-development collaboration.
  • We currently sell a couple printers per month.
  • Video production - getting up and running with OSE Film Studio
