Abstract

Enormous hype surrounds 3D printing, with predictions that it will spur a manufacturing renaissance in the United States (and perhaps the world), with everyone suddenly able to run their own cottage manufacturing facility. There are many areas where 3D printing really is creating significant change, particularly in designing and prototyping new products, in the arts, and in visualizing abstract concepts.
