This development seems to get an impact on the way how customers get their replacement parts, such as a broken button or key on a synthesizer. Teenage Engineering has put online their CAD files for the replacement parts of the cool OP-1 synthesizer. After downloading these files, customers can directly buy the desired parts via the 3D printing service Shapeways.
