3D printing. What the heck is it? A new video from PBS Off Book takes an in-depth look at the growing trend of 3D printing, and how it might affect consumers and other industries.

As the technology grows in popularity, issues are beginning to arise surrounding copyrights and intellectual property. Even though it's still in the early stages, 3D printing allows anyone with an idea to create a physical 3D object, no skills necessary. It might change manufacturing, it might not.

Check out the fascinating video to see what it's all about, and whether or not there's a future for this very interesting technology.
