3D Printing is really taking off. From personal action figures, printed body organs or just the plastic part you need for that broken gadget. “It builds it up layer by layer,” explained Dave Morris, founder of 3D Camp Houston. “And as each layer is printed, it starts to dry. And then the next layer is printed and it adheres to it.”

3D printing is already being used in the medical field, to “print” customized body braces for patients. And that’s just the beginning.
“Someday, we’ll be wheeled into the operating room,” said 3D Camp Houston Vice Chair Bridgette Mongeon. “And they’ll print a kidney in us, of our own biomass, which is kind of freaky when you think about it. It’s almost Frankenstein-ian.”
