Today’s The Hindu report on IT Trends talks about 3D Printing. You can make 3D plastic objects at home as per your design. This printer makes you to capture the existing object like cell phone casing, boxes, plastic casing for fragile materials which are more common in households. Though this technology is used in Industry for prototyping, it has become available to lay man also with the cost around $5000 from http://www.desktopfactory.com/ .
Dr. Adrian Bowyer who is behind this technology has promised to release the technology under GNU license. That’s great! This price tag will come down to $400 since other manufacturers too start manufacturing the 3d Printer based on open sourced technology.
