3D printing: a new era for design

Art & Business | 3D printing is the focus of all current economic, sociological, industrial and design affairs. Though it has existed since the 80s, Barack Obama has hailed it as the next industrial revolution. Technologically innovative, it is also becoming quickly accessible and adapting to new requirements on a regular basis; it is an open source enabling extrapolation and improvisation. The revolution is rooted in this notion of shared progress and the absence of patents. Already used in design contexts and template creation, some artists such as Miguel Chevalier and Mathieu Briand in France have begun to explore all of these visual options, examining the radical changes in progress.
