If I could earn a living doing what I love most it would be turning 3D concepts into a real object. In the year 2014 we have the capability to turn a 3D model on the computer into real touchable things using newly invented 3D printers. Being able to turn a 3D model created in the computer or scanned from something already made and printing a copy of it is amazing to me and will change the world.
Most everyone has a printer in their house to print out pictures or papers but imagine having a printer than can print out a cool toy, a part for your car, or even some great looking sunglasses someone has made online, and being able to hold it in your hands without leaving your chair. The limitations to 3D printing are endless. My dream job would be to be on the cutting edge of this technology and create things that could be printed out by anyone at any time. I love building things and being able to share my love with the world would be awesome.
