Although the technology isn't that mainstream yet, there is a huge focus on diversity, portability and versatility, making its use even more tempting for those interested in being makers rather than traditional consumers. Makers might be far and few in between when compared to consumers, but these examples of 3D printers makes it easier to take on such a role.

From food to makeup and even tattoos, these examples of 3D printers reach far and wide. They are also becoming much more compact, which is ideal for small businesses and domestic settings.
