A New Take on Printing

Abstract:
The latest issue of Business 2.0 is dedicated to finding the next great disruptive companies -- firms that might one day challenge General Electric (NYSE: GE), AT&T (NYSE: T), Microsoft (Nasdaq: MSFT), and even Google (Nasdaq: GOOG). Among other articles, the magazine charts the rise of rapid prototyping, also known as 3-D printing. It's an increasingly affordable technology that could have a big impact on business in the coming years.

Rapid prototyping uses computer-aided-design (CAD) data to help build physical objects layer by layer in three dimensions. In most cases, layers of liquids or powdered plastics are deposited by a printer, then sintered together into a computer-generated shape using ultraviolet light or a laser beam.
