3D Printing News

Not many technologies have a truly transformative effect on individuals, communities and businesses. This makes 3D printing unique, with some people describing it as the key component of the second industrial revolution. It is an industry that is evolving and expanding fast, but with the daily Wiser 3D printing news digest, you can stay up-to-date. The printing press made the written word accessible to every person on the planet. With 3D printing, the restrictions of two dimensions are fast becoming a thing of the past. 3D printing is a broad term used to describe the process of creating - or printing - 3D solid objects from digital designs. The origins of the technology date back to the 1980s when it was limited to a small number of industrial applications. Now it is becoming accessible across a wide range of industries, including consumer products and components used for space travel. From printing chocolate to prosthetic limbs to houses to gadgets, 3D printing technology is set to change the way we live. Staying up-to-date with this fast moving technology is easy.
