Companies are finding more and more ways to harness the power of 3D printing technology. At CES 2015, XYZPrinting, the company who also made the Da Vinci AiO 3D printer, introduced a 3D printer that makes use of flour and chocolate as “ink,” which you can then turn into pastries, cookies, cake decorations, and more (you still have to bake them).
After a grueling process of simplifying car design and manufacturing, Local Motors has given us Strati, an electric two-seater that’s known to be the world’s first 3D-printed car. The American motor vehicle manufacturing company unveiled its newest creation last September at the International Manufacturing Technology Show in Chicago.
3D printing technology has reached new heights since it penetrated the mainstream market. Take 3D pens, for example, the handheld version of the technology.
