slide10What is the future potential of 3D Printing?
3D Printers have become more affordable and widely available.
The quality of the printed objects has improved as well as the
range of materials that can be used for 3D printing. This form of
manufacturing has the potential to exist in peoples homes,
workplaces, shops and schools. The healthcare industry and
education are two prime examples that 3D printing will
