3D Printing Takes Shape in Multiple Industries
It seems like just yesterday when the concept of 3D printing was something you would have only seen in Luc Besson's 1997 sci-fi film, The Fifth Element. The scene in particular, when the remains of an unknown intergalactic being were recovered from a pile of wreckage. The cells of those remains were then used to replicate or reprint that being, named Lilu, played by Milla Jovovich. While the concept of "printing a person" may seem like something straight out of a Hollywood movie, 3D printing technology has become more of a reality and even more accessible (not to mention affordable) over the years. This post discusses 3D printing, it's current influence on a variety of industries, as well as some of the software that allows you to create those 3D printable models.
