New User-Friendly 3D Printing Tech from South Korea

South Korean Researchers Develop User-Friendly, 3D Printing Tech

The new handheld 3D printing technology utilises design functions and tools to make it easier for public use, and is set to be leveraged into the development of a low-cost 3D scanner for mobile devices

Researchers in South Korea have developed a handheld 3D scanner that conveniently generates data required in 3D printing, opening up many new user-friendly applications for the general public.
Many of the features of the new 3D printing technology -- including simulation tools, 3D scanning, and content creations -- were demonstrated on Wednesday at the K-ICT 3D Printing Conference 2015 in Seoul.
The technology works by simply scanning an object, manipulating its image on a computer, and "printing" out the new object in 3D, according to the South Korea Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute (ETRI).
