The ideas are really cool though. But I wonder, most of there items are printed using plastic.. Is this production even environmentally friendly?


I like the car idea, I think if this goes to a mass production, it will turn the industry upside down.
Does someone know, is the production of 3D printed car costs less than a real car?
It would be so cool
