Len Wanger works on industrial 3D printers. And I was pleased to find out that
there's a bunch of Python in those printers as well.

In this episode we talk about:

  • 3D printers
  • What are the different types of 3D printers?
  • Where are 3D printed industrial parts being used?
  • Why use one type of additive manufacturing over another?
  • Python in 3D printing hardware.
  • What are Finite State Machines, FSMs?
  • Benefits of FSMs for testing, logging, and breaking a complex behavior into small testable parts.
  • Benefits of simulation in writing and testing software to control hardware.

Special Guest: Len Wanger.
