3D Printing: What is it and what can it do for you?

01 February 2016

New blog by Dr Nick Taylor, Lecturer at the University of Dundee who specialises in interaction design, especially the use of technologies to support communities and civic engagement.

You might have seen an increasing number of articles in the media about 3D printing and digital fabrication in recent years, predicting that we might soon be able to print plastic objects as easily as we print on paper. It can be difficult to separate the hype from the reality—is it really possible or even particularly useful? Through In the Making, we've been trying to find out what the possibilities are for disabled people.

Read Dr Taylor's blog and find out the various ways that 3D printing can help disabled people.
