Digital Fabrication and 3D printing is one direction the future of manufacturing could go in. What does that mean for your future? Potential jobs designing objects or building/repairing 3D printers. What does that mean for you now? Design and make your own stuff! If you have an idea, you can build it. A 3D printer can be your present-making machine -- never buy another gift, create personalized, customized creations for your friends and relatives. A 3D printer can be your fixing machine -- Broke your phone case? Print a new one. Broke a knob on your dishwasher? Print a new one. A 3D printer gives your physical creations an “ undo ” button -- Printed an iPhone case that was too small? No bother, scale the design up and print a new one.
