Graham Klyne from Oxford University has been a software developer since the late 1970s. He was involved in various process control, CAD and scientific instrumentation software developments. He designed and developed the first commercial 3D motion capture system VICON. He has also been involved in the development of IETF and Web standards. Lately he has big interests in 3D printing - which neatly complements his earlier work in motion capture - and has constructed a RepRap machine(which he hopes to use for making specialist parts for model aircraft).

This year Graham Klyne has developed 2nd and 3rd generation RepRap from the first RepRap. He said if you could create or design something very quickly in the computer, then 3D printing is just like printing your digital photos at home or in a shop.

"I can imagine that we can see an ecosystem build up which would have parallels with what we can see with printing digital photos. The possibility of creating your own images – You can print them at home if you want to and if you have the right kind of equipment, but you can also take them and get them printed fairly cheaply at a store. There is a real possibility that we can see a much more competatively priced bureau service for realisation of 3D design".
