Indeed, it is stunning that a rocket thruster can be 3D printed. It seems like just a few years ago 3D printing was mostly restricted to objects that could be made out of plastic.

Advancements on 3D printer front are so quick and big that printer sounds like a misnomer-Wilber_xbox

You are very astute, Wilber, how about these:

CADmaker

Manufabber

Quikbuilder

Massformer

OK, so those aren't so good :(

Can any of you out their come up with something better?

Advancements on 3D printer front are so quick and big that printer sounds like a misnomer for this technology. Hopefully someone will come up with a better name.

Yes you are right. 3-D printing is no longer just for prototypes, but can also be used for limited-run end-user products. For long runs its still cheaper to use stamp dies for sheet metal, injection molds for plastic parts, and CNC (computer numerical control) machine tools for metal parts, but I predict that the day is in sight when even mass produced items will be using cheap, super-fast versions of todays 3-D printers.

With this type of application, it is very possible that 3D could have real impact on commerce and industry far beyond where anyone would have imagined. Its application is evolving and this sector is just young.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
