Future Manufacturing - do-it-yourself - reshaping the consumer economy

rapid fabrication technologies allow 3D objects to be created from a computerized design nearly as easily as a DVD burner makes playable disks. Until recently, these objects were limited to a single constituent material, often a fragile wax or imprecise resin. But today, 3D printers can use manufacturing-grade materials to make a limited variety of industrial and commercial objects. the near horizon are fabricators that will be able to produce electronic gadgetry, toys, and even industrial-grade equipment. And further out is the potential development of molecular manufacturing. As these devices improve, they’ll trigger a manufacturing transformation in traditional factories; quite possibly, they’ll also end up in homes and offices, reshaping our concept of the consumer economy.
