Corporations already use 3-D printers to make product prototypes before embarking on mass manufacturing. Now a handful of technology companies, including HP and Google, are looking for ways to bring 3-D printing to consumers and small businesses -- a trend that could have profound implications for manufacturing and design. Here's why: The blueprints or files for 3-D printing are digital and, as a result, can potentially be edited by anyone -- if the designer permits. Enthusiasts believe that such intense user input will lead to improved, more consumer-friendly products. Manufacturers fret about the potential for counterfeiting and intellectual-property theft that could accompany a proliferation of 3-D printers. In the very distant future, 3-D printers might make assembly lines obsolete for some objects, but it could also allow an entrepreneur to sell goods without incurring upfront factory costs.
