3D-Printed Photo

Consumers turn to 3D printing to bring their online selves to life

Implications - With the advent of social media platforms such as Instagram, every consumer has the ability to be an amateur photographer. 3D printed photography elevates that ability by offering a tangible, hyper-personalized product, as well as a heightened experience. This not only reflects a shift in the evolution of 3D printing, from function to entertainment, but also speaks to the growing accessibility of the medium as consumers’ adopt it as a method of customization.
