Applications and technology have really changed the look and feel of the world in the last decade. Transportation, finances, dating, you name it, it’s all been changed and it all feels very different than it did just 10 years ago. One area that might not seem very different is how we make physical goods. Manufacturing mass quantities of goods that we use has remained fairly the same, but that doesn’t mean that nothing has changed. Recently, mainstream adoption and advancements in 3D printing have paved the way for a whole new type of manufacturing, and with it, entirely new possibilities about the products we can make.
