The 3D Printing Revolution is about to transform our lives. While traditional laser and inkjet printers only make marks on paper, 3D printers build up solid objects in a great many very thin layers. Already pioneers are 3D Printing production tools, prototypes, jewelry, sunglasses, works of art, toys and vehicle parts. But this is just the beginning, with digital manufacturing destined to change how we create, transport and store a great many things.

Within a decade, some products may be downloaded from the Internet for printout in store or even at home. Already DIY enthusiasts are building their own 3D printers, while consumer models for the rest of us are just starting to arrive. Meanwhile doctors are learning how to 3D print kidneys and other replacement human organs.

In this book, futurist Christopher Barnatt explains how 3D Printing works, overviews the 3D Printing Industry, interviews some of its pioneers, and highlights how 3D Printing may help to save the planet. Also included is an extensive glossary of 3D printing terminology and a 3D printing directory.

Christopher Barnatt's 2012 book, 25 Things You Need to Know About the Future, was reviewed by The Futurist as "an exciting, yet realistic and believable, vision", and by New Scientist as "a worthwhile read for anyone curious to know what may await us".
