3D printing limited to stones and bones

September 30, 2014


While six mice and a 3D printer safely landed on the International space station last week, on Earth we are still trying to figure out how to benefit from this new technology.

Dresses, shoes and bones have been printed in 3D, but so far its most successful early adopter is the jewellery industry. Sites where custom pieces can be ordered are becoming visible on the internet and they are turning customers into jewellers. Shoppers can now unleash their creativity by changing order of engravings and stones, choosing different materials and finally see their masterpieces being rendered in 3D on their screens. Feeling unique by creating something special, no one else has, is the real advantage of the new technology.

What about the promise it will change the world? So far, 3D printing has not made an impact in our daily life. Maybe the space can provide new ideas on how to better utilise it.
