Posted in Printing Services by Chris Wiltz on May 12, 2014

It's going to change every step of manufacturing. It's going to let us print guns in our homes. And all of that will just be the start.

The truth is that it's going to be a while before 3-D printing brings the stuff of science fiction into reality. But that's not to say there isn't progress being made. If you sort through the noise, you'll find 3-D printing is actually making a real impact today in healthcare.
