Global TV Features 3D Printing

Global TV Features 3D Printing
Chief Correspondent Carolyn Jarvis of Canada’s Global TV presented a very comprehensive look at today’s state of 3D printing on their current affairs show, “16×9”. We bring this to your attention as this is perhaps the most mature examination of the technology we’ve recently seen by the media, which recently has tended towards the spectacular, outrageous and outright incorrectness. Not so in this video. 
 
In the 13 minute video, Jarvis not only explains how the technology works, but visits several key figures in today’s 3D printing industry.

The video also includes clips of many amazing 3D printed feats, such as the Urbee 3D printed car, chocolate printing and printing unborn children.
