I would personally very much love to build one of those. I imagine containing the hydrogen would call for something more dense than a thermoplastic though, wouldn't it? Hydrogen can leak through metal, let alone plastic..

All these Open Designs are great.

Anyone know of a group trying to Open up Manufacturing itself - so I
can get access to the expensive tools needed to implement one of these

In general I think that the OM community on this list is doing that. If you want something more focussed on exactly what you're talking about, see:

RepLab (,

It's an offshoot of the Open Source Ecology project inspired by the RepRap and FabLabs.

The list is pretty quiet, IMHO because we're heads down getting on with realising that vision. :-)
