Version Control for Real Stuff

One

Wanted: Version Control for Real Stuff @ Wired Design.

Desktop manufacturing tools like 3-D printers have spawned a new community of amateur makers who’d like to build upon each other’s ideas. But, co-creating actual stuff is harder than it sounds. Why? Unlike open software, which has popular collaborative tools like Git (and websites built on it, like GitHub), Subversion, and Mercurial, hardware has no system for version control.

  1. I was hoping Open Design Engine (https://opendesignengine.net/) would meet this need, but the site seems to have stalled. They were supposed to go to Open Beta in November (6 months ago!), but looks like this never happened.
