Future printing meets manufacturing

 

MakerBot is a 3D printer, something many companies are working on. Its an emerging technology so there’s clearly lots of fine tuning to go, but its yet another exciting technology that may well impact our lives and possibly even make it onto some of our desk tops one day. Right now it’s a single medium (plastic) printer, a bit like a black and white dot matrix printer, it’s a first step but look at how far we have come from there. Imagine this kind of technology combined with a 3D scanning technology… first step on the road to a replicator? lol how Star Trek.
