3D printing is the three-dimensional print of an object that can replace another. 3D printing wasn’t recently that popular until Barack Obama at his 2013 inaugural speech told citizens that it had the ability to take over a lot of things. I think people really started to see this as an issue because although the printer could make things we really need, it also was scary for some people when it came to breaking laws and regulations with it. Showing how you can practically make any object out of it, was showing people that they wouldn’t have to walk or drive to the store anymore. Laziness was the next topic after people are thinking they can just make anything with a printer. An example they gave for a regulation being present was when someone started to make guns out of the 3D printer. Almost everyone in our society would have a problem with this. Connecting this with the Haltman text showed me that these 3D printed objects will have no material culture when first printed new.
