3-D Printing3-D printing is the sister industry to robotics, creating a manufacturing revolution for smaller-scale products. Eventually, 3-D printers will make much of the plastic merchandise currently produced in China and sold in the U.S. This shift is already in motion, as toy companies begin to offer software for use with home 3-D printers. The 3-D Printing Index tracks 3-D printer manufacturers, firms that produce the components for 3-D printers and those that create the software. It includes Autodesk and Eastman Kodak, among others.
