Now, almost anyone can design and manufacture customizable objects when pressing the 3D print button, from plastic toy house furniture to medical prosthetic limbs, manufacturer: chris Anderson, author of the new industrial revolution, predicts that the rise of 'desktop manufacturing' will lead to 'The explosion of new things '.
'Although it's easy to post a blog post now, it's almost that easy to make a physical article.
You don't need skills, you just need an idea, 'Anderson said in a recent keynote speech on Canada's 3 Th.
0 Toronto Digital Media Conference.
Understand how 3D printing has worked in the last five years, digital technologies such as 3D modeling software and 3D printers have become cheaper, and ordinary people can make object prototypes until recently, only those who have a factory or skilled mechanic can make it.
'Now they don't need to buy a factory once they have a prototype, Anderson said:' They can upload it to the factory, just like you upload your ideas to an information factory called YouTube or Wordpress server or the Internet. '.
Manufacturing is 'becoming a button in a browser,' he added.

The lead of Wired, the father of five children, describes his own findings and how easy it is to order customization now --
Make objects online.
few years ago, he made a robotic soft bag with his children, and people began to ask if they could buy it.
Anderson needs to buy some cheap cars to make affordable kits.
On the Internet, he stumbled upon a manufacturer who produced custom motors.
'I don't know anything about cars,' he recalls . '
They think it's too easy.
Anderson 'designed' a motor by clicking on the options in the list provided by the manufacturer and ordered 5,000 units for 'a very good deal.
'I realized in that scene that basically just by clicking for 20 minutes I could have the Chinese robot do the job for me and they took PayPal,' he said . '.
'I feel cold, like I feel cold the first time I put a video on YouTube.
'Since then, Anderson has set up two companies that produce drones and robots respectively.
On the floor of a businessman not far from where Anderson spoke, Doug Angus-

They go from a detailed human skull model to a complex artwork that looks like a rice, rice, transparent plastic band that is cycled and folded into the shape of a huge egg. Angus-

According to Javelin throw technology.
The company has 80 employees nationwide and has been selling 3D-
Since 1997, modeling software for industrial design customers such as car manufacturers.
Three years ago, it added 3D printing and 3D printer sales to the service menu.
Angus: 'It really expanded our customers into new areas . 'Lee said.
The architect now employs Javelin to print the exact 3D model of the building, which takes only a fraction of the time and cost of manual production.
Animators turn their characters into collectible statues.
Doctors use MRI and CT scan data to generate models of body parts that can be used to plan surgery and test medical prosthetics and equipment.
'They can actually print out an exact copy of a person's skull from the MRI data, and then, they can test the shape and fit of the device they need to implant before they actually implant,' Angus-Lee said.
He added that the artists 'like 3D very much-
Printer technology because they can easily create very complex designs.
'This means that manufacturing is no longer just an area for professionals.
Anderson tells the story of how his daughters recently asked for new furniture for their toy house.

Anderson made a 3D jewelry with the children around him, and he logged into the Thingiverse website where people shared the blueprint for 3D printed objects and found one on Broadway
'We downloaded the chair exactly right and we printed it on the 3D printer and they painted it and they loved it,' Anderson recalls . '.
For those who want to design their own, the software makes the design simple.
Anderson shows how a free program called Autodesk 123D Catch creates a 3D model from a recorded image by rotating a smartphone around an object, such as a human head.
'You have a duplicator in your pocket,' Anderson said, adding that the model can then be used to print a custom plastic pez dispenser using a 3D printer.
Anderson predicts that given this power, ordinary people will design and manufacture things that manufacturers have never thought of making, resulting in 'new things, different things exploding', better things, cheaper things.
He believes that this 'democratizing' of manufacturing will lead to some kind of industrial revolution.
'Today we are all industrial designers,' he said. '
