More about 3D printing:
A breakthrough of 3D printing is that it enables one to design objects that would be unreasonable to manufacture with any other process. The designer's vision here is to take full advantage of this design freedom to create fun and exciting new products.
The designers use a 3D printing process called Selective Laser Sintering (SLS), and design their products using advanced 3D modeling software which is then sent to the 3D printer. The printer begins with a bed of powdered material; lasers then sinter the material into the shape of the design, layer by layer.
