3D-printing is seen as one of the important IT trends in 2016. Some think there’s been a lot of hype around 3D printing, but it remains a major growth area with vast potential. As the materials that can be 3D printed increase, so do the practical applications for 3D printers, with aerospace, medical, automotive, energy and the military all destined to benefit.
“Open hardware and democratised production methods like 3D printing can be seen as ushering in a third industrial age,” says Dr Kevin Curran, Technical Expert at the IEEE, who nevertheless sees food printing as the imminent trend for 2016. – Read more at:
