It examines the “who is responsible” question if you provide a technology that someone else abuses.The Maker community is an eclectic mix of artist, engineers, tinkers and hackers; so there is a section showcasing the outstanding artistic work that only a 3D printer could produce. Making this kind of technology available to the masses is certain to transform the world as we know it.Then there are numerous examples of how practical a 3D printer in the home would be; from replacing broken parts so that appliances may be repaired rather than discarded (how GREEN!) to making useful items yourself (like guitar picks) rather than having to run across town to purchase them.There are articles on how 3D printing is being used in medicine to construct cartilage, heart valves and bone replacement.For the entrepreneur, there are examples of individuals who have created a personal business around 3D printed products.
