David Ten Have from Ponoko visted the MAKE offices in Sebastopol, CA recently, and Dale Dougherty conducted this video interview. Ponoko accepts plans for 2D and 3D parts bundled with electronics and other products to bring access to hard-to-find tools to makers through the mail. They use the Spazzi robot project from MAKE 27 to illustrate how a maker can order custom printed parts online when a 3D printer is hard to find.
