3D printing has been the technological breakthrough of the new millennium. It has saved people from heart failure with new organs and it has provided military personnel with reusable and recyclable weapons to make life in the field a little easier. But with essentially unlimited possible uses, people are taking advantage of the simplicity of 3D printers for a variety of purposes.
For those that aren’t aware of this incredible technology, 3D printing was invented as early as 1986. The process is simple: printers take digital 3D models and transforms the files into a physical object. Investors and spectators alike were originally interested in the raw capabilities of these types of machines. But as technology improved, the possible uses of this kind of machine became too enticing to pass up.
While this technology may seem like it could only be found in a James Bond villain’s underground lair, 3D printers are more available than ever. You can find a variety of different models in stores like Best Buy, Walmart and Home Depot. Online retailers are also getting in on the fun with models available on websites like Amazon.
