Abstract

A growing community that shares digital 3D designs has created an opportunity to study, encourage and stimulate innovation. This remix community allows people not only to prototype at a minimal cost but also to work on projects they are genuinely interested in (Acosta 2009; Dougherty 2012). Participants free of the limitations typically imposed by formal organizations develop products driven by their own interest.
