Replacing Parts of 3D-Printed Models With Lego Speeds Up Prototyping

Replacing Parts of 3D-Printed Models With Lego Speeds Up Prototyping | 3D-Print Tech | Scoop.it
Before '3D printing' became a catch-all term, the hardware, which has been in use for decades, was referred to as a rapid prototyper. But even waiting five hours for a 'rapidly' printed part can be a waste of time. And that's what inspired Stefanie Mueller and researchers at the Hasso Plattner Institute to create software that swaps out the parts of a 3D model you don't need printed with Lego.
Tony Sacksteder's insight:

Software appears to an academic project only at this time. Looked at. ( http://stefaniemueller.org/fabrickation/) but don't see and download links. If anyone finds it out in the wild, please let me know!
