"In the 1980s, computer-controlled fabrication processes that added rather than removed material (called additive manufacturing) came on the market. ...Businesses already use these 3-D printers to model products before producing them, a process referred to as rapid prototyping. Companies also rely on the technology to make objects with complex shapes, such as jewelry and medical implants. Research groups have even used 3-D printers to build structures out of cells with the goal of printing living organs."-- Neil Gershenfeld, "How to Make Almost Anything"
