The Endless Possibilities of 3D Printing

Doctors, makers, and inventors are using 3D printing in some creative ways to do some amazing things. The versatility of 3D printing coupled with a good imagination is all you really need. You could go out, show a group of people how to use a 3D printer, and each one of them would think up a different use for it. That’s the power of creating and making. What could the inventor, the artist, the junior high school student come up with if they only knew about 3D printing and had access to one of those machines? Bill Gates once said, “I think it’s fair to say that personal computers have become the most empowering tool we’ve ever created. They’re tools of communication, they’re tools of creativity, and they can be shaped by their user.” Bill, I think the computer may have a contender to look out for.
