With 3D printing, the designer acquires a practical tool to enhance his creativity.

3D printing allows the creation of unique objects and the experimentation with new ideas, shapes and materials for prototype creation as well as the design and production of the final product. With 3D printing and scanning the designer becomes the producer the consumer and the creator. Old objects can be remade, mended, recycled. New objects which couldn't be created in the past now take shape, in a process where mass production and personalized service coincide.
