3D Printing

A recent development in IT, is 3D printing, with 3D printing, people can now effectively print anything, for example, it has already been used to print a working gun

3D printing, is generally useful, for example, once a design has been created, it can then be printed, rather than having to wait for people to make it, it can be sent to the printer, and all that the designer would need to do would be to wait, however, by using 3D printing, an implication would be job losses, as there would be less of a need for people to create designs, as the printer can do their job.

3D printing may also put a company at risk, as if a hacker/ unauthorised user gets hold off a prototypes design, they can mass print it.
