3D Printing and Scanning

NASA’s working on bringing 3D printers to space that are capable of printing pizza. We’ll let that sink in for a minute. You know what else you can do with a 3D printer? How about print a battery that can power your phone or laptop? Or how about 3D-printing a racecar, a pair of athletic shoes, or a variety of smartphone cases? The 3D printing craze is in full swing as people scramble to create the next best piece of 3D printing history and business-savvy people turn plastic into profits.
