3D Printing with Dilbert

By on November 6th, 2012 in coverage


This week Dilbert got into the 3D printing space by publishing a cartoon of the character making very effective use of his 3D printer. Hit the link below for the full strip.
Amusing, but not yet possible. Printing a body-sized item would take days on any of today’s machines and the results would be easily recognizable as not particularly human. 
But the real story here is that once again 3D printing technology is brought forward through a mass media outlet to the general population. Many more people have now at least heard of 3D printing, but fewer have seen it and far less have access to one. 
But that will change.
