Home of the Future
Last night, Channel 4’s documentary series ‘Home of the Future’ featured 3D printing and discussed how it could revolutionise the future of manufacturing. The programme talked to Lisa Harouni of Digital Forming and visited 3T to see the process in action.
The family were delighted in the lamp that was created using Digital Forming’s software and produced at 3T. The programme is available on YouTube and for a limited period on 4OD (series 1 – episode 2) until 19 March 2012.
Presenter and ‘Futurist’ Chris Sanderson is full of enthusiasm for the technology and says of 3D printing that: “… a technological revolution in manufacturing and retail has begun. I believe it will be as big as the internet …”
There’s more footage of additive manufacturing in action on the ‘work’ section of the programme website – click on ‘The Future of Manufacturing: 3D Printing’.
