3D Printing for the Masses

CES 2014, Las Vegas, NV - We're all hearing a lot of buzz about the world of 3D printing.  It really is a remarkable technology, one of those few that come along that really do have the potential to change the world.  The ability to create parts on demand, choosing from thousands (or potentially millions) of patterns and several different materials, both conductive and non-conductive with a single machine makes that potential obvious.  If that machine is coupled with (or includes) a 3D scanner, the potential is even higher.  The 3D printer's versatility is what has created all the buzz.  From simple basic plastic shapes to functional firearms to human organs, the technology is incredible.
