The 3D printing community is the largest and fastest growing part of
the Libre Hardware community. With this rapid expansion, the need for
better tooling is becoming evident, both to improve accessibility to
every day users and to empower new contributors. Fedora is the first
and only major GNU/Linux distrobution to package most of the Free
Software tooling used in 3D printing today, which is an important
step, but the tools themselves need to be improved further.

This talk discusses the current state of Free Software in the context
of libre hardware 3D printing - new developments, opportunities for
further involvement, and areas of concern. The talk will also include
a demonstration of hardware from Lulzbot - the makers of the only 3D
printers that carry the FSF's "Respects Your Freedom" certification.
