3D printing technology has been around for approximately 20 years, while it is developing fast enough to stun the aliens. At first, only factories or art-design institutions carried 3D printers, and now it’s accessible to almost by everyone. The software generating forms were impossibly to be done before, but 3D printing really cracks the restrictions and open up the infinity of complex form.

While as a product designer, the phenomenon I see now is that complex and similar forms are continuously prototyped by people to celebrate the birth of 3D printing, it was indeed a pulse at once, but those 3D prints start to bother me a lot gradually. The real goal for people and designers is to identify the value of 3D printing and how to utilize it, understand to create what is needed instead of what looks like a fantasy.
