3d printing

Science fiction writers have always dazzled readers with the idea of devices capable of producing exact copies of objects. Today, 3D printers are already equipped to reproduce objects with even the most convoluted structure many times over. Computer models can be used to print cutlery, interior design elements, spacecraft parts and even weapons. The essential materials used in modern 3D printing are plastic and metal. There are also some new printers that use wood filaments with glue, and scientists are getting closer to using separate cells to print entire organ transplants.
