3D Printing

The 3D printer is a term used in a computer-based printer that can with high precision print 3-dimensional prints mostly by using different types of plastic that add on layers by layers of plastic, in one or two colours or even multi-colours (more advanced and expensive). The fast development of 3D technology makes it difficult to keep most people updated. Nevertheless, I will call this the next industrial revolution and making Internet step out of the cyber world (abstract) and into becoming a specific reality.

3D-printer is capable of fabricating anything from toys, shoes, food decoration to body parts to entire houses. Personal fabrication devices make it possible to manufacture custom objects on-demand without expensive and environmental costly shipping around the world (Internet of things) See The Fab Home Project and body scanning technology
