Engineers of the future can not only design their inventions they can manufacture them in 3D.

     A little machine called a 3D printer at Kenmore Middle School in Arlington works more like a piece of high tech manufacturing equipment. Design whatever you want on a computer-aided drafting program called Mastercam and it makes it come to life. Plastic thread the size of a weed whacker string is fed through the machine.
