Demystifying 3D Printing

So you have an idea? How will you make it? The way in which we develop and manufacture physical products is changing at an exponential rate. Digital manufacturing and new technologies like 3D printing are no longer the tools of deep-pocketed industrialists. These methodologies are quickly replacing massive machines while at the same time enabling concepts like ultra-rapid prototyping, distributed manufacturing, slim production and personalized, custom products. The systems are at a point where they are economically available to nearly everyone.
