I'm excited about this, since most of the open source printers are made by a few smart people in their spare time, while Autodesk has the resources to put behind this and really make it work. Most open source printers feel incomplete, and are often hard to use, so a better platform will be a welcome addition.

They mention following the Android model for phones - if Autodesk is half as successful as Google was, this will be a really big deal.
