3D printing is a fascinating technology that has already impacted the world in quite a few ways, but will continue doing so.
This technology has the power to save lives, provide powerful tools, change the way products are made, change the way product development testing is done, and bring manufacturing to virtually anyone with a computer and basic modeling skills.
3D printing technology is for anyone who wants to manufacture, make, build, or design products. Anytime a person thinks of “manufacturing,” the idea that thousands of dollars typically comes up.
Another connotation to manufacturing is the difficulty to do it, and the need for strong logistics to bring it all together.

This is somewhat of a thing of the past now, due to 3D printing. There is really only one significant need when a person is thinking about manufacturing through 3D printing.
If the person can design on the computer, or get an artist to design for them – 3D printing is accessible. It’s affordable, and available to anyone who can come up with a 3D design.
What can be done by this technology?
3D printing can do pretty much whatever you need it to. People are manufacturing pieces in metal, plastics, full color material, flexible material, heat resistant materials, chemical resistant materials, wax materials for casting, etc.
There are so many materials to choose from and so many methods – there are just too many options. There really isn’t a limit to what 3D printing can touch.
This technology has the power to change the world for good.
