It will happen in phases. First we will gain control over the shape of physical things. Then we will gain new levels of control over their composition, the materials they’re made of. Finally, we will gain control over the behavior of physical things. Control over shape A 3D printer can carefully interpret a digital design file, bringing us one step closer to tapping into the rich creativity and freedom of the virtual world. If you watch an animated movie, it’s clear that the scene on-screen was created on a computer.

Employ fewer than ten employees, and a quarter employ fewer than five. A 3D printing industry that’s worth a few billion dollars a year may be insignificant in the big picture, but a few billion dollars a year distributed amongst many small businesses could go a long way. The blank canvas of the 21st century Companies that make 3D printers keep a careful eye on the new world of nimble manufacturing. I paid a visit to one of the leading 3D printer companies to get more insight. From the outside, 3D Systems’ headquarters looked like any other successful mid-sized technology corporation that’s home to more than 700 employees.

Second, my former colleagues could only print simple inanimate objects made of a single material. Today we can “fax” simple physical objects. I worked on a project with a colleague of mine, an archeology professor. He deciphers ancient cuneiforms from several thousand years ago. His research regularly takes him to archeological sites in various countries in the Middle East. Recently my colleague returned from a trip abroad, perturbed that he could not bring invaluable information home with him.
