    • 1. 3D Printing Debunked
    • 2. 3D Printing Definition• The process of ‘printing’ a3D solid object of from adigital model• ‘additive manufacturing’rather than traditional‘subtractive process’
    • 3. Myth 1: Its new3D printing technology emerged in early eighties and waspatented in 1986 by Charles Hull.
    • 4. Myth 2: They self-replicate• 3D printers need ‘vitamins’;metal drivers, electronics,rods or motors to work thatcan’t (yet) be made on 3Dprinters• The ‘Reprap’ project is anexample of this
    • 5. Myth 3: It’s just for ‘computer geeks’• Consumer-friendlysoftware• Scanning & customisation• Prices starting from £500for a 3D printer
    • 6. Myth 4: 3D printed guns, a dangerto society• Blueprints freely availableonline for download currently• 3D printed gun carried throughan airport• ‘The Liberator’, it is made of 16parts for assembly• Legislation gathering pace toaddress security concerns
    • 7. Myth 5: 3D printed food to endfamine• NASA scientists developing 3D-printed‘food’ as answer to “food shortage,inflation, starvation”• Simulated food made from powdered‘organic molecules’ from insects andalgae• Likely to be used in space programs thethe future, still in development
    • 8. 3D printing: creative possibility
