3D Printer

When we think of printing we naturally think of the printers that we have at home or at work. They print in standard 2D and are great little machines, however their basic function hasn’t changed since the 1960′s. That’s where a company called the Z Company comes in. You see they’ve developed a printer that can actually print in 3 dimensions, in fact this sucker is so cool that it truly has the ability to revolutionize how certain items can be produced. The process starts by scanning in a 3D image of the item that you want replicated. Once into the system, the item is then slowly molded out of an epoxy powder into just about anything you can imagine. While not yet available on a mass scale, the 3D printer gives us all a little glimpse of what we could possibly see in the future.
