3D printing, or additive manufacturing, has the potential to democratize the production of goods, from food to medical supplies, to great coral reefs. In the future, 3D printing machines could make their way into homes, businesses, disaster sites, and even outer space
3D printing is being explored as a major solution for current and future levels of hunger and homelessness.
3D printing also is being used to get essential goods and services to disaster areas and refugee camps, allowing workers and stakeholders to have access to the tools they need to recover.
3D printing is also allowing us to use old materials in new ways that are more sustainable.
