So what do you do with your MakerBot 3D-printer?
You design a center console for a Tesla Model S of course! (Using the awesome Tinkercad :) And then you print it, and take a picture of it, and post the design to the cool Thingiverse website. And a few people like it, and a few people print it, and then ... nothing.
Until one day, TechCrunch finds it, and writes an article about it (!) and poof! you're on the cover of TechCrunch, your 15 minutes of fame. The geek equivalent of the cover of the Rolling Stone.
