Sky News reports that advances in 3D printing technology could revolutionise the way products are manufactured and brings the manufacturing job back to the country.

Professor Richard Hague, director of the EPSRC Centre for Additive Manufacturing, is exciting about the possibilities that 3D printing technology could bring - the design freedom and the prospect of printing multi-material components, complete with working electronics.

He said, "The future research area we are working on is the printing of complex biological, conductive, or optical interconnects within the body of the part - so effectively what we're trying to do now is move away from conventional single material additive manufacturing, to really multi-functional additive manufacturing where we're printing the whole system."

Besides, more and more consumer goods and personal products are personalized that individuals tend to cherish the product and keep it for longer, which could benefit our environment as well.
