3D printing really helps give car manufacturers ideas on new models that should be made and introduced into the car market. It helps manufacturers get the best way on how to design cars and to make them beautiful. It is like preparing a blue print to use in building a car. With these the manufacturers tend to effectively and correctly produce the desire car without having to start over and over again when any problem occurs.

I agree Charles. Imagine the time and effort being saved by using 3D printing just for the exterior of a car. Combine that with the production of other parts by 3D printing and you can well imagine the overall cost and time being saved using this technology.

In 2003, the world contained just over 500 million Internet-connected devices. By 2010, this figure had risen to 12.5 billion connected objects, almost six devices per individual with access to the Internet. Now, as we move into 2015, the number of connected 'things' is expected to reach 25 billion, ultimately edging toward 50 billion by the end of the decade.
NASA engineer Brian Trease studied abroad in Japan as a high school student and used to fold fast-food wrappers into cranes using origami techniques he learned in library books. Inspired by this, he began to imagine that origami could be applied to building spacecraft components, particularly solar panels that could one day send solar power from space to be used on earth.
Biomedical engineering is one of the fastest growing engineering fields; from medical devices and pharmaceuticals to more cutting-edge areas like tissue, genetic, and neural engineering, US biomedical engineers (BMEs) boast salaries nearly double the annual mean wage and have faster than average job growth.
