3D Printing and Design
Complexity is Free
With subtractive manufacturing, complexity can get expensive and sometimes even impossible. Additive manufacturing means that we can now manufacture complex designs without much added cost or waste.
Let's Talk About Materials
The material we'll be using is called PLA (Polylactide). It's a biodegradable and bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch, cassava roots, chips or starch, or sugarcane.

3D Printing and CAD get really interesting when you realize that the world around you was designed and built by people just like you. Try to think of another creation like the Tooth Paste Squeezer that'd help you or your family in your daily lives.
A Personalized Future
Most products you own (glasses, shoes, shirts, etc.) weren't custom built for your unique specifications, instead they were mass produced for average sizes. Can you imagine a future in which everything you own is designed and built just for you?
