Bastian Schaefer on 3D Printing

You’re probably have already heard about 3D-printing and how it’s changing the way we currently make objects as well as its ability to revolutionize various fields. Furthermore 3D printing could be used to make much larger items if the “printers” themselves scale up.

Bastian Schaefer, a cabin engineer with Airbus, discusses in this TEDTalk how 3D printing can be used to build an airplane from the ground up – creating small components now and then creating larger components, up to creating a whole airplane when technology allows for us to build large enough 3D printers.
