A 3D printed world / 4BC

3d_clothes_nervous_system6.jpg6From knitted quilts on display at this year’s Brisbane Royal Show where 4BC’s Clare Blake is broadcasting live from to 3D printers may seem like a large step, but in reality the artisan, bespoke, one-off nature of quilting and 3D printing are almost identical.

Both require you to start from a need, find or make a pattern, get your materials and your tools, make it and then use it, and in this week’s regular chat Clare and I look at the 3D printing revolution and some of the items that we will soon print at home, or in-store, including clothes, shoes, pizzas, houses, cars, planes, tables chairs and the list goes on.

Have a listen now (11 minutes 15 seconds) to the things we might 3D print tomorrow and then let me know what you want your 3D printer to print for you.
