3D printing will be a disruptive force in manufacturing and IT, but with the benefits come safety risks.

To say that 3D printing is booming would be putting it lightly. At the 2014 International CES this month, an entire exhibition space was devoted to the technology: the sold-out 3D Printing TechZone. Further, countless reports, including one from IDC, project explosive growth in the 3D printing market between now and 2017.

3D printing seems capable of producing a global renaissance in manufacturing. It has the potential to transform the supply chain by allowing a rise in distributed (versus centralized) production.

In addition, on-demand production capabilities may reduce waste and lower inventory costs.
