#12daysofbusmas: 4 days to go

3D Printing is tipped to be the future of manufacturing. For some people/sectors it could change everything. It might not be the most efficient solution for production runs in their thousands, but for making one-off parts, or prototyping your inventions, it’s an incredibly accessible and affordable resource. You don’t even need to be a fully-fledged geek to make it so. If you don’t have access to a printer you can use tools like Tinkercad to design your creation and then send it through to companies like Ponoko for it to be printed.

Or, for #12daysofbusmas (4 days to go) I’ll help you design your special something and then send you a couple of 3D prints of it. Bear in mind your design needs to be achievable in contemporary 3D printing (I can’t print in Gold but I could print you a burrito, for example ;P) but we can discuss all of that as we go.
