Walter Klassen makes the stuff of science fiction.  Movie props, that is, from his studio in downtown Toronto using an Objet Eden 3D printer by Stratasys. But as more industries embrace 3D printer technology the stuff of science fiction is becoming reality.  In a recent article the Toronto Star explains what 3D Printers are and their potential to change almost any industry.  Javelin customer Matt Ratto of UofT’s Critical Making Lab says “It may rival the transformative power of computers in decades to come”.  The article also includes a great video showing Objet Connex technology by another Javelin Customer 3D Phactory, a 3D printing and design studio in downtown Toronto.

Coolest 3D Printer Projects? recently released their 10 Coolest 3D Printer Projects.  Personally I think the list should have been called the “10 most over hyped 3D printer projects by the media”.  What do you think?  Leave your comments below.
