    Skyforge

    Was wandering on kickstarter when I saw this project : Skyforge.

    What do you think ? Another astroprint/printtopeer rehash or more valuable features ?

    It appears to be similar to Astroprint/printtopeer. Seems like a lot of people are getting the same ideas at the same time.

    Contrary to Astroprint the "freemium" seems much limited though. I'm pretty sceptic about using home printers enough to print for others and generate more than19$/month (cost of pro version).

    I'm also sceptic about leaving the machine unattended and letting people start it without me present... Just for filament feed / resin cleaning issues that would be problematic. Perhaps I need to read the fine print is all. Perhaps one year from now our machines will really be "click and forget" ;-) ?

    I was not clear on what it did. Does this program/service let you use other people's printers?
