    3D printing technology has the potential to democratize the manufacturing process. 3D printers have become more affordable so almost anyone can access them either at home, work or a local Fablab. Now that this access is becoming more widespread, it is interesting and perhaps useful to find out what people are making, or at least what they want to make. This short, work in progress paper will illustrate how the author is attempting to find out what people want to make, while at the same time making 3D printing more visible where it might otherwise not be found.
