Passion for Pontificating on 3 – D ” Printing “

Okay, maybe not ” pontificating “, & I wish that the industry would come up with another term besides ” printing  “, but it’s just such a fascinating subject that I feel a certain attraction to it.

& I could almost believe that Gene Roddenberry foretold the whole thing in the various incarnations of Star Trek.

I’m particularly interested in the medical applications of 3 – D ” printing ” & making humanity’s lot just a tiny bit better in that regard – Skin, organ & muscle tissue, or substances similar to them, that can help a lot of people with disorders, diseases & the results of accidents.

If we’re ” playing God “, then I prefer to think God / a Higher Power would say ” Go for it “.

As usual ( Disclaimer ) I can’t always vouch for the accuracy of these links.
