This exhibition introduces how innovators use 3D printers to turn computer data into physical objects that could change our life, a technology that will change the future.

The exhibition display includes an explosion of over 600 printed objects, revealing how 3D printers inspire creativity and ground-breaking design. The stories focus on the future of industry, medicine and whether 3D printing will change our shopping experience (lighter, more efficient plane parts that could save fuel on your flights - replacement body parts...)

The exhibition also shows how 3D printing can inspire artists in Inversive Embodiment, an intricate sculptural work by Tobias Klein that incorporates MRI scans and St Paul’s Cathedral.
