Who actually uses 3Dprinting, and what are they doing with them?

  • Currently, 3d printing is widely used in the aeronautics, automotive, and electronics industries, as well as for medicine and dentistry: big, high tech industries were precision, speed and customization in the manufacturing process are competitive necessities.
  • But 3d printers are also widely used at another scale of production by designers, makers and increasingly by small businesses for making jewelry, toys and even food. This is the economy and scale of the growing 3d printing culture that is engaged by this project.
