Printing in 3D

The rapid prototyping machine prints out plastic objects from a 3D design.

We have all heard of 3D video games, 3D movies and 3D televisions; but one of the newest developments in 3D technology is a three dimensional printer.
The printer, which is also known as a rapid prototyping machine, was one of the hundreds of innovations in production technology on display at the Technology 2011 Trade Show in Tel Aviv.
