3D printing: A New Industrial Revolution

November 16, 2012

Do you need a kidney? A new watch? Or a house? So print it! It sounds like science fiction, but the technology is closer than you think.

Right now, the sale of personal 3D printers is exploding. It is now possible to get your very own machine for less than 1,300 dollars. But desktop 3D printers are only the beginning. 3D printing holds potential for an entire revolution of the way we manufacture our products.

Get your own 3D printer:
MakerBot - MakerBot Replicator 2 ($ 2,199)
3D Systems - Cube 3D Printer ($ 1,299)
