@Ann: If people try to misuse the beauty of technology creations, then the outcome will be utterly dangerous. That is where you take the wrong turn on things.

a.saji, can you say a bit more about what you think is "the wrong direction"?

@Ann: Yes there are always 2 sides of everything and same theory applies for this as well. I feel 3D printing is superb and will be the next big thing in IT but the fear is what if it goes in the wrong direction. What kind of negative impacts will it have ?

a.saji, I have not personally used 3D printing. I've talked to people who have used it, mostly the high-end machines producing engineering prototypes and small-batch end-products for aerospace. Like any technology, it could have negative impacts on our world, which we've discussed in the comments sections to many stories in Design News.

@Ann: Have you tried 3D Printing by any chance ? What is your idea on it ? Do you think it can have bad impacts to the world we live ?

Thanks for the info. Sounds like something you're not allowed to talk about much.

@Ann: Yes Ann I'm working on a AI project which involves some other electronic methodologies too. It can be used to detect the facial expressions which might or I'm trying to make it suited for ATM or even Healthcare and IT systems. I feel by doing this, the risk will get mitigated to a certain level.

a.saji, sorry but I don't understand what you're getting at. Involve AI in what project? One you are working on? Please tell us more.

How 3D printing fits into the digital thread, and the relationship between its uses for prototyping and for manufacturing, was the subject of a talk by Proto Labs' Rich Baker at last week's Design & Manufacturing Minneapolis.
Some carbon composite processes are moving into volume auto manufacturing, while intensive R&D is being conducted on many fronts to fast-track material and process development.
How can automakers, aerospace contractors, and other OEMs get new metal alloys that are stronger, harder, and can survive ever higher temperatures? One way is to redesign their crystalline structures at the nanoscale and microscale.
According to freelance website Upwork, demand has risen sharply since last year for engineers with experience of all kinds in 3D printing and AM.
Although a lot of the excitement about 3D printing and additive manufacturing surrounds its ability to make end-products and functional prototypes, some often ignored applications are the big improvements that can come by using it for tooling, jigs, and fixtures.
