3-D Printing Takes Shape - IEEE Spectrum | 21st Century Information Fluency | Scoop.it

In 2012, 3-D printing technology will go from prototyping to production...


The promise of 3-D printing is tantalizing: You envision something, draw it with the right software, and then print it in three dimensions—regardless of how many parts it has, how they interlock, or whether they will even be accessible once your creation is completed. With this strategy, anyone can make almost anything. Someday, lots of stuff will be manufactured this way, on demand.
