Ironhorse,

Great parallel.  Burning "stuff" is a quick solution used too many places in the world.  When the fire is out, the stuff is gone and out of mind.  But what is out of mind oftimes becomes the stuff in the lungs, the bloodstream, the organs and cells.

As for the scented candles, hopefully the proliferation of LED "fake" candles on the store shelves this year lead to fewer scented candles that must be endured.  A Christmas wish for 2013 and beyond?

My point is 3 fold:

"Burning stuff" is how nature does it.  [I've been presented lake sediment data showing prehistoric fire events were quite periodic (every 25-27 years)]

It doesn't go away.

We evolved eating and breathing it.  (we didn't evolve eating grains)

Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
Optomec's Aerosol Jet systems have now been used by several customers for printing 3D polymer and composite structures at the micron scale with embedded electronics and biomedical applications.
3D printing is now adding value to manufacturers at all steps along the business value chain. Come find out how at a talk by John Jaddou at next month's Embedded Systems Conference in Minneapolis.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
A team of researchers at Stanford University and IBM Research have developed a catalyst that could quickly and inexpensively generate biodegradable plastics derived from renewable materials.
