I almost felt like I was part of making history.”—Ellen “This exercise was my favorite because we were actually able to make a product that we could touch and hold.”— Michelle “It allows consumers to be creators rather than buyers. I think this is one of the coolest aspects of 3D printing because we no longer have to rely on corporations for all of our needs.”—Mike “There was a feeling of accomplishment and pride that came with making the cookie cutter.”—Rachel
