As 3D printing is becoming popular, many people are striking a fortune and making it big in the industry. Such achievement may not be a cakewalk, but then seeking ways to get a breakthrough is by far the only way to get there and realize what others have conceptualized into moneymaking means. If you have always had interest in 3D printing and you are into making money with this technology, it is about time you worked smart to beat the challenges ahead. 3D printable models may be created with a computer-aided design (CAD) package, via a 3D scanner, or by a plain digital camera and photogrammetry software. 3D printed models created with CAD result in reduced errors and can be corrected before printing, allowing verification in the design of the object before it is printed. Several projects and companies are making efforts to develop affordable 3D printers for home desktop use. Much of this work has been driven by and targeted at DIY/Maker/enthusiast/early adopter communities, with additional ties to the academic and hacker communities. Three-dimensional printing makes it as cheap to create single items as it is to produce thousands and thus undermines economies of scale. It may have as profound an impact on the world as the coming of the factory did....Just as nobody could have predicted the impact of the steam engine in 1750—or the printing press in 1450, or the transistor in 1950—it is impossible to foresee the long-term impact of 3D printing. But the technology is coming, and it is likely to disrupt every field it touches.

The book in front of you is the first international academic volume on the legal, philosophical and economic aspects of the rise of 3D printing. In recent years 3D printing has become a hot topic. Some claim that it will revolutionize production and mass consumption, enabling consumers to print anything from clothing, automobile parts and guns to various foods, medication and spare parts for their home appliances. This may significantly reduce our environmental footprint, but also offers potential for innovation and creativity. At the same time 3D printing raises social, ethical, regulatory and legal questions. If individuals can print anything they want, how does this affect existing systems of intellectual property rights? What are the societal consequences of the various types of products one can print with a 3D printer, for example weapons? Should all aspects of 3D printing be regulated, and if so, how and to what ends? How will businesses (have to) change their way of working and their revenue model in light of the shift to printing-on-demand? How will the role of product designers change in a world where everyone has the potential to design their own products? These and other questions are addressed in high quality and in-depth contributions by academics and experts, bringing together a wide variety of academic discussions on 3D printing from different disciplines as well as presenting new views, broadening the discussion beyond the merely technical dimension of 3D printing. Bibi van den Berg is Associate Professor at eLaw, the Center for Law and Digital Technologies at Leiden University, The Netherlands. Simone van der Hof is Full Professor at eLaw in Leiden and Eleni Kosta is Associate Professor at TILT, the Tilburg Institute for Law, Technology and Society at Tilburg University, The Netherlands.

Printing Industry generates a wide range of products which require in every step of our everyday life. Starting from newspapers, magazines, books, post cards to memo pads and business order forms each are the products of printing industry. Printing is a process for reproducing text and image, typically with ink on paper using a printing press. There are various types of printing process for example offset printing, modern printing, gravure printing, flexographic printing etc. Offset printing is a widely used printing technique where the inked image is transferred from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, the offset technique employs a flat image carrier on which the image to be printed obtains ink from ink rollers, while the non printing area attracts a film of water, keeping the non printing areas ink free. Gravure printing is a printing technique, where the image to be printed is made up of small depressions in the surface of the printing plate. It is divided into three broad product areas; packaging printing, publication printing and speciality printing. Printing technology is often carried out as a large scale industrial process, and is an essential part of publishing and transaction printing. This is the age of hi fi, jets and computers. Rapid advancements in science and technology have made their impact on the printing industry of the world too. The old techniques of printing have become obsolete and made way for the new technology. The printing industry is just one example of an entire industry movement that is changing while keeping up with the development of new technologies. The proliferation of emerging technologies has dictated a rebirth of the printing industry. The Indian Printing Industry is well established and presently growing at 12% per annum. This book majorly deals with typographic technology, photo scanning systems, sequence of steps in the printing processes, size and scope of the printing industry, high volume printing technologies for the production of polymer electronic structures, inking system, film high contrast printing, principle of planographic printing, modern printing process, ink jet etc. The book contains the latest printing processes like web, gravure, flexo, security and offset printing. This book is an invaluable resource for new entrants, technicians, craftsmen and executives working with printing industries.
