This paper makes an investigation into combining heterogeneously- layered manufacturing (LM) machines into one homogeneous manageable unit, thereby allowing a user who wants to make use of LM to gain the advantages that LM provides. Such a user does not have to have direct access to LM hardware, but needs an Internet link to make use of the LM technology. The locating of production resources is done by a locating agent. This empowers small companies and inventors to get a conceptual design directly from the computer aided design file, thereby giving even the small designer or inventor the tools available to large companies.
