3D PRINTING “PHOTO BOOTHS” POPPING UP ACROSS THE WORLD

It’s no secret that 3D printing is one of the superstar emergent technologies of 2012. New 3D printers have been announced, crowdfunded projects launched, prices have dropped, and adoption among professionals and enthusiasts alike continue to gain momentum.
