Background

While 3D printing is a 30-year-old technology, its consumer applications are still at its infancy stage. Lower cost printers and materials allow for more players to get involve and identify new and interesting opportunities. This trend has received a major traction in the past couple of years and the use of 3D printers have been explored in several verticals including healthcare, where direct human benefits were witnessed by a few pioneer cases (e.g. Invisialign, hearing aids, etc…)
