since its emergence over the last several years, 3D printing has been transforming the way in which we can prototype and produce objects. with the development of this additive manufacturing technique – whereby strata of liquids or powders are built up to render an object – we are now able to realize particular shapes and forms which were previously unattainable through typical reductive processes; and render ideas into reality more seamlessly. with quick advancements in this field of technology, 3D printing is becoming more accessible and a go-to means of fabrication, with rapid prototyping machines being found more and more in homes, offices and workshops; proving its appeal to the mass market and our society’s growing sensibility for design.
