3D Printing Plastic – PLA Bioplastic – PLA plastic, whose full name is Polylactic Acid, is a kind of plastic that belongs to the group of Thermoplastic, manufactured from renewable resources such as corn starch and sugar cane.
3D Printed homes for the Homeless – The homeless is a difficult problem to tackle in many large cities. Most condos and appartments are too expensive for them to afford/hire. When large cities like New York city (USA) forbid building of new Single Room Occupancies (SROs) or transformation of commercial homes into SROs, 3D printing technology became the solution, by ultilizing existing spaces (Scott, 2017)
