    I liked the 3D printing article. For some reason the first link did not open, It was giving a error.
    Thanks for sharing , I went through some older FTOTW as well.

    Thanks Veena. That first link seems to be a bug. Will check. Next time that happens, click on rsukumar at the front of the link, that will take you to the original tweet I posted and that will also have the unmodified link. I tried it for the first one and it worked.

    Thanks for checking out and more importantly thank you for commenting.
