"Perhaps you’ve heard of Star Trek’s wondrous “replicator”, a device capable of instantly producing any arbitrary item. There’s no such thing in real life. But there is a technology that may lead to full-on replication: 3D printing."
"While working on his home office this month Al Dean has been pondering the growth in awareness of 3D printing. With the mainstream media talking 3D printers in the home again, is a reality check is in order?"
"For desktop designers, consumer-grade 3-D printers are nothing short of revolutionary. But the technology is still fairly crude, limited to producing “low-resolution” shapes made out of plastic.

"For the solo exhibition of Alicia Framis in the Rabobank headquarters Utrecht, the Netherlands, Joris van Tubergen made an interactive installation using an Ultimaker 3D printer. Together with software developer Miguel Jimenez he developed the ‘Screaming Room’: A stand alone installation where the scream of a visitor is instantly translated into a shape printed by the Ultimaker. Without any intervention of an external operator this installation produces unique art pieces by the visitor: For free! The 3D art piece, made of biodegradable plastic, is a gift to the screamer."
"Dan Johns, a world expert in additive manufacturing, currently working on the Bloodhound SSC project, is featured in the book. He says: “Additive manufacturing offers true freedom of design to alter the mechanical behaviour of things and design them from the inside out. Design and manufacture will truly emulate nature, where nothing is straight or square, material is only placed where it is needed and systems are smart and fully integrated. In this renaissance, engineers will be artists and visionaries to match the genius of Leonardo da Vinci."
"Another 3D printer startup has emerged: the Makibox A6, billed as: "The $300 Desktop 3D Printer". The project is led by Jon Buford, who hopes to raise USD$40,000 by the end of February through the funding site Makible."
