Podcast: Awesome Stories of 3D Printing

3D printing is permeating every industry from architecture to filmmaking. @mapgirll and I highlight some of the latest commercial uses of 3D printing, including:

  1. Rapid prototyping — e.g. scale models
  2. Customized objects — e.g. shoes, prosthetics
  3. Mass production — e.g. car parts
  4. Reconstruction — e.g. paleontology, forensics
  5. … and a few pretty weird examples.

We discuss how the technology works and how you can 3D print something, and the important steps involved in a 3D printing workflow. Plus, hear a real example of how Oslo converted terrain and building models and printed a scale model of the city.
