3D printing emerged as one of the hottest topics at the 2013 SXSW Interactive Festival...witness the buzz around the Opening Remarks from MakerBot CEO Bre Pettis. Also part of the panel programming at this year's event was University of Texas Law School Student Cody Wilson, who is founder of the company Defense Distributed.
