    It’s col how people discover cool stuffs like this. It’s amazing how technology affects us all. In recent years 3D printers have become financially accessible to small and medium sized business, thereby taking prototyping out of the heavy industry and into the office environment. It is now also possible to simultaneously deposit different types of materials.
