Lessons from Animals and Additive Manufacturing

The use of 3D printing for tooling and production primarily benefits humans, either directly through medical and consumer applications, or indirectly by improving systems and processes that humans use. But 3D printing is also benefiting animals in a variety of ways, some of which may come to bear on how it will help humans in the future. I discussed five instances of additive manufacturing’s overlap with animals (pets and otherwise) in this week’s episode of the AM Radio podcast. Learn… Read More »Lessons from Animals and Additive Manufacturing
