Innovations such as 3D printing are driving a growing trend towards homemade products. The fact remains, however, that it still takes high-end equipment to create and test many designs, and that’s where TechShop comes in. With a chain of equipment-filled workshops available on a membership basis, the company lets consumers turn their designs from dream into reality.

Flexonics describes our vision of a new class of mechatronic devices that differ from their traditional counterparts in both device fabrication and design. Our goal is to build fully functional mechatronic devices without assembly. These devices will integrate structural, mechanical, and electronic componenets during fabrication using an all inkjet printing process. We intend to develop a complete 3D printer, and create a vocabulary of mechanical and electronic components.

The technical term for 3D printing is ’stereo lithography’, and is accomplished through the layer by layer construction of a 3D object. In one method, a layer of liquid resin is “printed”, and the resin is then cured by a laser in the exact pattern for that layer. The object is slowly built in this manner, and the non-cured resin is then removed, leaving only the portions of the object that were cured by the laser.

The vision was of a way to use a technology then barely known--3D printing, which was mainly being used to make medical and auto parts--and selling products that people could design themselves and sell them strictly over the Internet. Production would be fast, design would be key, and individual customization would be easy.

I designed the Printrbot to be the simplest 3D printer yet. There are some great kits out there - the Makerbot, the Ultimaker, the Prusa Mendel, and others - but none as small and simple as the Printrbot.

Indeed, the digital age is providing companies of all sizes – as well as individuals – with the means to design and make a product relatively inexpensively. In turn, these tools are transforming the role of the traditional factory. Soon – really – it will be possible to print out products at home ranging from appliance parts to shoes.

Far-fetched as this may seem, many other people are using three-dimensional printing technology to create similarly remarkable things. These include medical implants, jewellery, football boots designed for individual feet, lampshades, racing-car parts, solid-state batteries and customised mobile phones. Some are even making mechanical devices. At the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Peter Schmitt, a PhD student, has been printing something that resembles the workings of a grandfather clock.

Three-dimensional printing makes it as cheap to create single items as it is to produce thousands and thus undermines economies of scale. It may have as profound an impact on the world as the coming of the factory did....Just as nobody could have predicted the impact of the steam engine in 1750—or the printing press in 1450, or the transistor in 1950
