How many things are in your life? I am not just talking about the things that you have to do. I am talking about the actual objects that you use. What are some of the things that you have had to deal with? A house that has that one strange wall or door, a bulky, stinky cast on you or someone in your family?
What would you change? Take a second, and really think. What would you change about the million and one objects that you interact with on a daily basis?
What if you could made all of those things at home? And I am not talking about buying a kit, and trying to decipher the technical schematics, only to end up with a couple pieces left over (or a couple short). I am talking about printing any one of those things, just the way that you want it. The right curves, the right color, with your personal touch to it.
How? Is is some sort of mold? Custom order? In a way, it is a custom order. It is by 3-D printing. The technology has been for more than 30 years. As you can see here, it has improved much over that time. It has gone from just putting simply putting the layers together, to binding them with their own molecular bonds. 3-D printing has gone from just printing out plastics, to printing with metals, ceramics, and even with human cells. Yeah. They can print organs now.
There are things that you can make by way of 3-D printing that is an impossibility any other way. Medicine, manufacturing, technology, gadgets, entertainment, entrepreneurship, all of these aspects of life can be changed and done by 3-D printing. The uses of 3-D printing is amazing. The limit of the uses? Your imagination.
