Replicating the Future: History and Applications of 3D Printing
The emergence, rapid development, and widespread availability 3D printing technology fulfills a promise that science fiction made more than half a century ago. We now possess the capability to rapidly transform ideas into reality with the mere push of a button.
These capabilities are no longer limited to master machinists or the technically savvy. The desktop 3D printing revolution, driven by the maker community, permits anyone to innovate and replicate.
- a brief history of 3D printing
- discussion of the science behind replication technologies
- how these technologies are altering the way we think about everything: from biology to boots, from cars to cafeterias.
The future is not for the taking, THE FUTURE IS FOR THE MAKING!
