Feature – 3D Printers:
The idea of 3D printers is that you can print out actual things such as a toy car, lego, shoes or even toy hands(very handy then!). These 3D printers use a technique called additive manufacturing(AM). This means that the printer adds material to the object being printed layer by layer.
3D printers made their first appearance at the consumer electronics show(CES) in Las Vegas in the USA earlier this year.
They have also made a splash here in the UK. On the TV show “Home of the Future”, a family got to use a 3D printer to print out things such as a bedside lamp.

They are using 3D printing in conjunction with bespoke computer-aided design software to manufacture actual parts for their planes. In the future we could see 3D printers evolving to replicate pretty much anything you desire such as a car or a complete working aircraft.
