    nothing to do with them, they are simply the consumer of the end product. Three-dimensional (3D) printing is drastically different from all current models of production and it is starting to blur the line between consumers and producers (Finocchiaro). This new technology allows physical products to be printed as easily as words can be printed on a piece of paper and is rapidly becoming more prevalent in consumers ' homes (Brean). 3D printing uses an additive manufacturing process, in which products are constructed layer by layer, with a series of cross sectional slices. The models for these products are created using 3D Computer Aided Design…

    only thing that limits us is our creativity. Well 3D printing allows just that! Invented by a man named Chuck Hall, 3D printing allows us to take a digital file from a computer and “print” a real life physical 3 dimensional object. So how does 3D printing work? A 3D printed object is built up one layer at a time from bottom-upwards by repeatedly printing over the same cross-sectional area. After that these layers are arranged on top of each other and as a result forming a solid 3 dimensional…
