@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.

GE Aviation not only plans to use 3D printing to mass-produce metal parts for its LEAP jet engine, but it's also developing a separate technology for 3D-printing metal parts used in its other engines.
The demand for solar energy around the world will grow a total of 75% by 2019, according to a new report by Lux Research. Trade disputes and policy changes, though, will complicate the picture.
Bayer MaterialScience is using CO2 to produce a precursor for high-quality polyurethane foam at its pilot plant in Leverkusen. The transition to full-scale manufacturing is expected in 2016.
Plastic bags can become useful as either raw materials for plastics or feedstock for fuel. It's when they're not recycled that they become a major problem. That's what California's bag ban will prevent.
NASA's JPL and Caltech have achieved the mind-boggling feat of 3D printing multiple metals in a single end-part, grading from one alloy to another. They've also developed a method for combining metals with carbon fiber composites in end-production parts.
